Wilderness (1957)

Zenna Henderson

Chick yarn about a woman who meets and gradually falls in love with a man who shares her supernatural powers. This shallow and occasionally ridiculous story is part of the author’s series of stories about the “People,” a group of extraterrestrials stranded on Earth. Overlong, initially obtuse, and finally melodramatic; but also “compassionate and perceptive,” according to editor Judith Merill, who included this hopelessly immature work in her book The Year’s Greatest Science-Fiction and Fantasy for 1957.
