Anne McCaffrey is, to my mind, one of the best Science Fiction writers I've ever read. I read this book several times in paperback form and was a little disturbed with the lax editing when it was turned into an e-book. Minor errors such as "an" instead of "all" etc. Minor but a bit annoying errors which did not occur in the paper edition (I went back to my stash and looked) I would have hoped that such a wonderful story would have been more carefully translated. Oh well... Still love the story and will keep reading.

I read the "Rowan" series before I found this book. I actually started reading it only because it was written by Anne McCaffrey (one of the best in the business). Not long after I began reading I realized this was the precursor to the "Rowan" universe. This book was a surprise. A wonderful book written by one of the greatest authors in any universe.

One of her good books but the plot sort of jumped around a little.

Every now and then you come across a book that you had to continue to read. That by the time you finished the book you were thanking the author for writing such a good book, yet cursing her for not writing a longer book. Well that is how it was for me; the problem being that I have neglected my homework over the past two days. If Anne McCaffrey�s other series (Pern, etc�) are like this, I will have to be careful that I have no essays due then. This novel deals with a group of people who have different telepathic �Talents�. The strength of the book, besides the smooth writing style, is how the book was divided and the stories they told. The first story is more or less an introduction, then a generation later the other three stories tell us about Ruth and her latent but most interesting power, about the Maggie 'O tragedy and last about Amalda, a broadcasting empath. The only hitch to the book is that it was written in 1973 so for us who have been swamped be the �X-Files�, the lack of government conspiracy may not seem just right. Remember when you open the book to set aside a day or two.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is an interesting group of four stories which explore the explosion of psychic "Talents" in a not-so-distant future Earth. Talents range from telepathy, telekinesis (moving objects with the mind), healing, clairvoyance, precognition, empathy, telempathy, and others. In a time when psychic phenomenon can be proven scientifically, Darrow must direct the course for the safety and use of these talents.
McCaffrey explores ideas such as: * How would "normal" humans act in a society where some people have more abilities than others? * How would society protect the Talented from wrongful legal suits? * Can the Talented police themselves?
While the stories were originally written as short stories and, as such, are somewhat disjointed, there is a logical progression with recurring characters propelling the Talented into the future.
An engrossing book, it is followed by Pegasus in Flight and Pegasus in Space. These novels are the bridge between modern Earth and the universe of "The Rowan" when the Talents help colonize space.

If you have read and liked McCaffrey's other telepath books you will be interested to learn background information about the beginning of the telepath/teleport organisation. Of course the story has aged quite a lot (the dates given in the story have already long past - the trouble with setting things in the near future!), but the concepts are still interesting.
The plot progresses through short stories - which makes it a little disjointed. Following on in this timeline are "Pegasus in flight" and "Pegasus in space" which are in standard novel form.
