"After the first human contact with the Siwannese, that entire race committed mass suicide.
So the terran government made a law -- no further contact would be allowed with sentient creatures anywhere in the galaxy.
Therefore Doona could be colonized only if an official survey established that the planet was both habitable and uninhabited.
But Spacedep had made a mistake -- Doona was inhabited.
Now the colonists' choice was limited. Leave Doona and return to the teeming hell of an overpopulated Terra. Or kill the catlike Hrrubans.
Or learn, for the first time in history, how to coexist with an alien race . . . "; 6" - 7" Tall

New York, NY Del Ray / Ballantine 1983 0345297687 / 9780345297686 Tenth Printing Mass Market Paperback Very Good 
Illustrated by Hildebrandt, The Brothers (cover)

Corners bumped, slight edge wear/rubbing. A couple pages dog-eared. A clean, tight copy.

This is a collection of short stories that introduce Helva (XH-834), the to-be-legendary Ship who Sang. Helva was born physically defective, but with a perfectly good brain. Mankind of McCaffrey's Central Worlds universe has learned to save these children and allow them to live productive lives -- as the encapsulated 'brain' running a spaceship......or space station, or city. McCaffrey masterfully paints the growth of Helva as a human being, both limited and freed by the titanium shell she is encased within.
An excellent introduction to science fiction, McCaffrey has more recently authorized several 'sequels' involving shell-persons and set in the same universe: "The Ship Who Searched," "Partnership," and "The City Who Fought."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

Their illicit flights seemed but a minor disobedience -- until they found themselves in the path of danger and in a position to prevent the biggest disaster of all!"; 5" - 6" Tall
