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
