MutanteBook - 2002
After the Blow-Up, the children of a small group of the survivors were born with the capacity for telepathy--to perceive and share the thoughts of others. This minority, once the children became able to communicate their ability, became a feared and quarantined group. They can read the thoughts of every human at will and this ability to invade privacy and anticipate action is soon perceived by the majority of non-telepaths as implacably threatening.
The struggle for co-existence between humans and telepaths, some of who feel that extermination of the others is the only answer, is the concern of this novel (originally published as five related novelettes) and its ultimate solution is both elegant and surprising. Fearlessly addressing themes of persecution, discrimination, and the fate of underclasses in a stratified society, Mutant offers unforgettable scenarios and characters that will keep you thinking long after the book is finished.
