Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Al Burkhalter is a Baldy, a telepath so called because of the complete lack of body hair shared by all of his kind. Some time after the 'Blowup' -- the population's name for the worldwide nuclear war whose radioactive fallout created the Baldies, civilization is slowly rebuilding itself and attempting to come to grips with a radically altered world. Baldies are feared and hated for their abilities. "The Piper's Son" is a story of one man and his wife and son as they try to make the best of their new world... which seems to be a lot like the old one.
