Overview

There's Lone, the simpletion who can hear other people's thoughts and make a man blow his brains out just by looking at him. There's Janie, who moves things without touching them, and there are the teleporting twins, who can travel ten feet or ten miles. There's Baby, who invented an antigravity engine while still in the cradle, and Gerry, who has everything it takes to run the world except for a conscience. Seperately, they are talented freaks.Together, they compose a single organism that may represent the next step in evolution, and the final chapter in the history of the human race.

In this genre-bending novel- among the first to have launched sci fi into the arena of literature -one of the great imaginers of the twentieth century tells a story as mind-blowing as any controlled substance and as affecting as a glimpse into a stranger's soul. For as the protagonists of More Than Human struggle to find who they are and whether they are meant to help humanity or destroy it. Theodore Sturgeon explores questions of power and morality, individuality and belonging, with suspense, pathos, and a lyricism rarely seen in science fiction.

First published in 1953, this most celebrated of Sturgeon's works won the International Fantasy Award, as has been touted as "a masterpiece of provocative storytelling" (The Herald Tribune). A group of remarkable social outcasts band together for survival and discover their combined powers renders them superhuman.

    I'm a big Sci Fi fan and like interesting takes of it.  I seen on Goodreads how underrated this book is and thought I would give it a try.  I like some of the themes in this, and it is worth the read. You can see where this inspired Vonnegut and others.

    More than Great

    This is a great book about several psychics who band together to become something amazing and unheard of. Also this book holds up outstandingly well for a book written in the early 50's. In fact the only real reason you can tell it was written in the 50's is the stand it takes against racism and how the subject is approached.

    One of the best books about people with psychic powers of all time. So, I say to hell with Carrie.
