(1973)
A novel by

 
 
Why should New Morning School, in the year 2004, suddenly attract so much attention? Surely, by this time the Intensive Therapy theory upon which the school has been built has proved to be successful in turning out well-adjusted graduates to help augment the government's growing powers. And since the founder and guiding spirit is in his eighties, the whole program is bound to die a natural death soon anyway.

But somewhere there's trouble, and it centers around a strange mutant named August. Just entering his teens, he seems to be coming into possession of ominous powers... in particular, an ability that allows him to fuse himself physically with other human beings. They, as a result, can see with his eyes and feel with his senses.

Where August's powers come from, where he decides to share them, how this affects such diverse people as a school girl, a madman, a teacher and a policeman... why August is felt to be a supreme danger to the state... these are some of the provocative situations that fill this unusual and compelling novel of a logically-possible future.
