War with the Newts (1936)

Creators

Karel Čapek (writer).

Extent

Read in Swedish.

Categorization

Dystopian SF.

Commentary

Too heavy on the allegorical contents. The writing, the ideas and the emotional impact are all greatly inferior to “The Shadow over Innsmouth” (1936), but I appreciate Čapek’s greater concern for mechanistic worldbuilding and social change.
