Charley vive en un establo. Es un corcel que pertenece a un Chillón, invasores alienígenas que han conquistado la Tierra y utilizan a los humanos como monturas. Charley sabe cómo ser un buen corcel, pero ahora deberá aprender a ser humano. Carol Emshwiller obtuvo el premio Philip K. Dick con esta inolvidable fábula que explora el significado de la libertad

"You scared an old lady half to death with your snoring. She thought you were a bear."

Extraterrestrials take over earth and make humans their slaves: we have to carry them on our backs, our breeding is controlled for the best outcomes to serve their purposes, we have to farm for them, the list goes on and on. Kind of like a weird payback for how we enslave animals for our selfish needs. Good job, Emshwiller!
