After the Great War ends, Czechoslovakia has a thriving artistic community that includes celebrated playwright Karel Capek. But history changes when a young woman walks into Karel's life with a strange mannequin in a wheelchair… a mannequin that gets up and moves all by itself!
UNIVERSAL ROBOTS tells the compelling, alternate history of the Twentieth Century, beginning with the invention of the robot through the destruction of Nazi Germany at the hands of the robot army, and concluding with the horrifying robot rebellion against the human race.
