Howson was a runt. Twisted, ugly, crippled. The kind of guy people just didn't want to know.

But when he took a deep breath, braced himself and projected his thoughts thousands of miles into space, they were all over him. Howson's telepathic powers were like nothing they'd ever known before . . . and he became the greatest curative telepathist in the world.

But when they put him to work chasing people's nightmares deep down inside their minds, could they be expected to cope with what the runt found in there? More importantly, could Howson?

First published in 1964.
