Description

War with the Newts by Czech writer Karel Capek, vintage science fiction novel written in 1937. This Berkley Medallion edition was published in 1976. 241 pages.

Capek is also credited with introducing the word "robot" in another of his books.

From the back cover -

"They were called devils by the natives when Captain Van Toch first discovered them near an island off the coast of Sumatra. A little known species of salamander, they were the size of a ten year old boy, with a parrot-like capacity to repeat human speech, and a beaver-like talent for building damns.

No one could have predicted that these strange creatures would turn out to be more than just an exotic curiosity. For the Newts were destined to over run the world, and no one could have guessed with what startling results."

Spine of book is tight; no loose or torn pages. Cover shows slight signs of wear (see pictures). Pages show age-related tanning, as expected in a 40 year old paperback. Intro page has letters in the upper left corner.

Unique gift item for a science fiction fan. Stocking stuffer.
