La famosa saga de los "Calvos", los nuevos mutantes telépatas, en la que se aborda con seriedad y profundidad el tema del surgimiento de una nueva especie de telépatas y los problemas de supervivencia del nuevo grupo minoritario debido a la vida en común con el Homo Sapiens.

Kuttner, Henry. Mutant. 1953. E-book ed., Gateway, 2013.
A nuclear exchange has created a viable mutation of hairless telepaths called “Baldies.” Mutant, by Henry Kuttner, describes the Baldies as a self-conscious minority community, most of whom wear wigs in public to hide their telepathy. They feel superior to non-telepaths, but they know they are feared and perhaps envied by non-telepaths. These themes are as timely as ever, but the stories are also creatures of their time. One can imagine them as episodes on Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock. They share some themes with A.E. van Vogt’s Slan (1940), and they look forward to such works as Kurt Vonnegut’s “Harrison Bergeron” (1961). Mutant, a “fix-up” novel based on short stories that appeared first in Astounding, was originally published under the pseudonym “Lewis Padgett,” a name often used for works Kuttner co-authored with his wife, C. L. Moore. Later editions are usually attributed to Kuttner alone. It is still worth a read. 4 stars.… (mais)

I read the first three of the five stories, and may finish this at some point (which is why I didn't say DNF). Right now, I have to say, yes, my friend is right, this seems like a precursor to Rick & Morty, the animated series. It is dated, but not unreasonable, and goofy but just clever enough. I wouldn't be surprised to learn alcohol was involved. :)

#1 "Time Locker" got a 'well yes of course' snort, at the appropriate moment, so that's a success.
#2 "The World is Mine" is silly and predictable, with bits of clever.
#3 "The Proud Robot" (my friend's favorite) I found it fairly cleverly plotted, but I got bored and had to push to the end, so of these three, I enjoyed the first one best.

Haven't read:
#4 "Ex Machina"
#5 "Ex Machina" (same friend said this one was meh)
