Dennis Guise is the most powerful telepath on the planet, so powerful, in fact, that his mind is constantly overwhelmed by other personalities. This leaves Dennis the individual in an almost catatonic state, except for when he is channelling other people. After an episode in which he becomes attached to/embodies an environmental terrorist, Dennis' parents send him to the moon, believing that the isolation will help him. But even far removed from planet Earth, Dennis continues to channel powerful identities, his telepathic powers stretching through time as well as space to fill his mind with the presence of Leonardo da Vinci and the Marquis de Condorcet. Dennis eventually asserts his own personality so that he can act as something of a switchboard operator for this multitude of voices in his head. He must use these powerful, intelligent and passionate personalities to convince a race of aliens, who have been manipulating human beings since the beginning, that humanity is worthy of survival. Interesting read, but with an abrupt ending. ( )

Another blend of fantasy & SF. A futuristic world where space travel & psi talent are both commonplace. When a boy is born with a gift of telepathy that is so powerful that it becomes a curse - even moving him to the moon isn't the answer. He taps into too many minds, including one that is extremely unique mind that belongs to a man who knows how we were created & why we are here. Our societal problems are explained & time seems to wrap. Tightly written in a broken series of mental flashes & a variety of scenes, told from several points of view that carry a sense of discovery to the reader that a straight narration wouldn't have done. Very well done, as usual & expected. ( )
