Another classic science fiction from the 1960 s I found at the flea market and a good one Demonic children resulting from a nuclear accident What s not to love Unusually thought provoking with well definded characters and nifty wtist at the end PLeasant surprise at how well it is written Lacks any kind of suspense, and has a certain level of predictability but all in all a good read.

A futuristic tale of a society that has locked kids in kids that has recieved supernatural powers psi after a radioactive accident A good story. Still great Interesting premise, but some problematic old fashioned sociology
