 Baldy

created by C. L. Moore and Henry Kuttner
(collaborating under the name of Lewis Padgett)

Precis

Baldies are a post-apocalyptic (or post 'Big Mistake' as it's called) human mutation that have telepathic powers. They are a different species arising from a mutation. This Big Mistake caused an identical genetic modification in some people so a small percentage of post-Mistake offspring exhibit dominant Baldy traits - Baldies become a permanent and growing percentage of the population.
