Mutant. [A novel.].

Henry Kuttner's 1953 novel of a despised community of telepaths hiding from society carries echoes of the Holocaust and the postwar DP communities. Kuttner, the most inventive and gifted short story writer in all of the science fiction, bridged this novel from five novelettes in Astounding - four were published that atomic year, 1945.

  • "After the Blow-Up, the children of a small group of the survivors were born with the capacity for telepathy. This minority, becomes a feared and quarantined group; "ordinary" humans feel that their privacy has been taken from them and that the mutants, by knowing their inmost secrets, could destroy them. Most of the "Baldies", as the mutants are called, submit to the quarantine; they seek peaceful accommodation with the "Normals". A small minority of them, however, seek the destruction of humanity, feeling that no co-existence with the majority would ever be possible."
