Imagine a group of incredibly gifted children -- all roughly the
same age, all hiding amazing abilities from a world they know will
never accept them, and all the result of genetic mutation. One man
commits himself to the task of gathering these extraordinary
children into an experimental new school, both to guide them in the
use of their unique abilities and to shield them from the jealous
suspicions of the 'normal' population. You may already be familiar
with the saga of The Uncanny X-Men, but this is the tale of Wilmar
Shiras' Children Of The Atom, first published in 1953 by pioneering
SF publisher Gnome Press. This limited edition "facsimile" reprint
volume is a complete reproduction of the original first edition
(published by Gnome Press in 1953) and includes a full-color dust
jacket, protective slipcase, and biographical information about the
Red Jacket Press
