Two dystopian satires from one of the most distinguished writers of 20th-century European science fiction. R.U.R. is the work that first introduced the word 'robot' into popular usage.
Karel Capek (1890-1938) was one of the most important Czech writers of the 20th century and a major voice in early European science fiction. His work traversed many genres and his most famous play, R.U.R., introduced the word 'robot' into popular usage. He died on Christmas Day 1938.
Two cautionary (and visionary) tales that show us full well that man is at the top of the evolutionary chain through no real merit of his own. -- Graeme Flory * GRAEME'S FANTASY BOOK REVIEW Blog *
