it was amazing
Recommended to Artnoose by: dystopian sf book club

Yet another book read for the dystopian science fiction book club. This delightful book was written in the 1930's and tells of the discovery of a population of newts who, in addition to being much taller and dexterous than your average variety, are also capable of being taught speech and mechanics. They are of course bred into a race of slaves for corporate capitalism. And why not breed millions of intelligent salamanders and arm them with explosives, technology, and weapons? What could go wrong?
