Publisher Description

A desperate boy escapes his abusive home by joining a carnival and is drawn into a dark conspiracy in this tale by “a master storyteller” (Kurt Vonnegut).
 Though only eight years old, little Horton “Horty” Bluett has known a lifetime of sadness. Tormented and abused by his adoptive family, he’s had enough—and with a beloved broken toy he calls “Junky” as his sole companion, the desperate little boy runs away to join a carnival. There, among the fortune tellers, fire-eaters, sideshow freaks, and assorted “strange people,” Horty hopes to find acceptance and, at long last, a real home. But disgraced doctor Pierre “Maneater” Monetre’s traveling show is no ordinary entertainment, and its performers are not what they appear to be. The Maneater has sinister plans for the world that go far beyond fleecing unsuspecting rubes and other easy marks—a dark and terrible scheme that requires unleashing the extraterrestrial power of the dreaming jewels, and the unwitting assistance of a young boy who may be far more remarkable than he’s ever imagined.

The full-length debut by Theodore Sturgeon, a legendary writer who won Nebula and Hugo Awards and authored such classics as More Than Human, this journey into a circus of shadows is “an intensely written and very moving novel of love and retribution” (The Washington Star).
 This ebook features an illustrated biography of Theodore Sturgeon including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the University of Kansas’s Kenneth Spencer Research Library and the author’s estate, among other sources.
