Baby Is Three

Baby Is Three (1952)

Theodore Sturgeon

Powerful, expertly crafted novella about a 15-year-old boy who confesses murder to a psychiatrist, then spins out a fantastic tale of his relationship to a kindly spinster, a telekinetic, two teleporting twins, and a three-year-old idiot savant in an effort to find out why he did it. A horror story with an intriguing science fiction twist. Selected by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the greatest science fiction novellas of all time.
