More Than Human. Theodore Sturgeon. Six misfits, one powerful entity. Individually, they are a seemingly simpleminded young man living in the woods who can read the thoughts of others, a runaway girl with telekinetic powers, twin girls who can barely speak but can teleport across great distances, and an infant with a mind like a supercomputer.

Powerfully telepathic, he lacks a moral compass—and his hatred of the world that has rejected him could prove catastrophic. Moving and suspenseful, lyrical and provocative, the novel was one of the first to elevate science fiction into the realm of literature, and inspired musicians and artists, including the Grateful Dead and Crosby, Stills and Nash.
