War with the Newts
Hardcover edition with dust jacket of a satirical 1936 Czech science fiction novel by Karel Capek. It concerns the discovery of a sea creature called the Newts that is subsequently enslaved by humanity. I haven't read it yet but apparently the Newts rebel hence the "war" mentioned in the title. I do plan to read this one day, but in the meantime, I admire the fantastic deco dust jacket art. I thought this would be a fun book to post, particularly since "V" is coming back to TV in early November.
