This volume contains Karel Čapek’s novel, "The Absolute at Large" (first published in 1922). It is a science fiction novel that centres round the discovery of a mysterious new source of energy that utterly transforms society as we know it. It was hailed by R. D. Mullen as "one of the genuine masterpieces of Science Fiction". This volume is highly recommended for fans of vintage science fiction, and it constitutes a veritable must-read for fans of Čapek’s seminal work. Karel Čapek (1890 - 1938) was a Czech writer during the early-twentieth century, who famously coined the term ‘robot’ in his 1920 play “R.U.R.”. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.

‘War with the Newts’ (1936) is Karel Capek's darkly humorous allegory of early twentieth-century Czech politics. Captain van Toch discovers a colony of newts in Sumatra which can not only be taught to trade and use tools, but also to speak. As the rest of the world learns of the creatures and their wonderful capabilities, it is clear that this new species is ripe for exploitation - they can be traded in their thousands, will do the work no human wants to do, and can fight - but the humans have given no thought to the terrible consequences of their actions.
