Finished Karel Čapek's "War with the newts" (1936). Fantastic book, an early satire on  colonialism, arms race, nationalism, industrialism, and more (and with actual newts). Easy and interesting in it's unusual and somewhat antique form. I will definitely try to find more from Čapek (not that easy in German, but there are more English translations), especially R.U.R with, supposedly, the first use of the word "robot" in it's current sense. Strongly recommended to many of this board.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
