Handicap Haven is where Earth has exiled a population of bizarre "freaks" unacceptable on a planet consumed by perfection. Banned forever from returning to their home planet, they look outward---to the stars.

Imagine, if you can, that Christopher Columbus never existed - that in his place was a fantastic crew of circus freaks. They would be our heroes of history as discoverers of the New World. We all would honour the Fat Woman, erect statues to the Human Firefly, perhaps name a continent after the Hald Man-Half Machine. So, who will be the first interstellar explorers and make the first alien contact? On a tiny asteroid between Mars and Jupiter a handful of people seek the honour. They are the "Accidentals". They are pathetic, crippled and deformed humans, half or quarter men and women, fractional organisms masquerading as people. To many they are just "circus freaks".

First published in 1955, this is his one and only novel much to everyone's chagrin!.
