Inhaltsangabe:

When Horty Bluett was adopted he arrived clinging to a beat-up doll with eyes that seemed to glow. Little Horty came to call his doll Junky, and he felt lost without him.

Because Horty knows he is different -- not like other boys. And he knows that his adoptive parents hate him for it. So he runs away from loneliness, fear, and persecution to a carnival where he feels safe among the freaks with Junky. But for Horty, safety is impossible. For there is a man who knows just what makes Horty and Junky different, and he will stop at nothing to control it.

Rezension: Eight-year-old Horty Bluett is mocked by his classmates and abused by his adoptive parents until the day his father severs three of his fingers. He runs away, taking only a gem-eyed doll he calls Junky, and joins a carnival. Finding acceptance at last, Horty never dreams that Junky is more than a toy, nor does he realize that a threat far greater than his cruel father inhabits the carnival and has been searching for Horty longer than he has been alive.

Though less well-known than Isaac Asimov, Arthur C. Clarke, or Robert A. Heinlein, Theodore Sturgeon (1918-1985) is even more important to the development of literary and humanistic science fiction. He received the Hugo, Nebula, and International Fantasy Awards, and the World Fantasy Life Achievement Award. The Dreaming Jewels (1950) was his first novel. --Cynthia Ward
