More Than Human
All alone: an idiot boy, a runaway girl, a severely retarded baby, and twin girls with a vocabulary of two words between them. Yet once they are mysteriously drawn together this collection of misfits becomes something very, very different from the rest of humanity.
This intensely written and moving novel is an extraordinary vision of humanity's next step.
First published in 1952, More Than Human won the Retro Hugo Award for Best Novel.
