The most ambitious Czech sci-fi title of the last decade
0 TU is a chronicle of the culture of the Tals, their rough voyage to the remote landfill called Coraab, and their subsequent colonization of the region.
The remote landfill has always stimulated the imagination of travelers and adventurers. To fully appreciate its complexity, we must start at the very beginning of its era. And that’s where Jakub Hussar’s historical sci-fi epic 0 TU (pronounced “oh two”) takes us.
The two-part novel 0 TU is no classic space opera-type science fiction. Much more reminiscent of serious historical fiction of the Mika Waltari type, it also boasts an attractive feature – an original soundtrack accessible via QR codes at the beginning of each chapter
