We Are the Mutants is a magazine devoted to Cold War–era sci-fi, fantasy, genre, pulp, cult, occult, subculture, and dissident media. Founder and editor-in-chief K.E. Roberts discusses the quote that inspired the magazine’s name.

We Are the Mutants comes from graffiti seen at the University of California at Berkeley in the late 1960s: “The bomb has already dropped, and we are the mutants.” It was quoted at the beginning of Theodore Roszak’s Unfinished Animal: the Aquarian Frontier and the Evolution of Consciousness (1975), and I think ultimately comes from philosopher Herbert Marcuse, who taught at the University of…
