Thorns

by Robert Silverberg

Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction

Hugo Award: Best Novel nominee (1968).
Nebula Award: Best Novel nominee (1968).

Lona Kelvin – naive orphan. And at seventeen, mother of one hundred children.

Minner Burris – starman. Whose butchered body had been put together by aliens, with artificial alien replacements.

Horror stalked just beneath the surface of these two lonely creatures.

Duncan Chalk – a vulture, carrion eater of other people's emotions, feeding on pain, fear, anger, hatred, jealousy, terror; typifying in the appetites of his vast body the sick delight millions took in the tragedies he skillfully arranged.

Lona Kelvin – Minner Burris – Duncan Chalk. Surely the strangest triangle the worlds had ever seen.
