      Zenna Chlarson Henderson was born on November 1, 1917 in the Tucson, Arizona area She graduated from Arizona State in 1940 with a Bachelors degree in education and worked as a teacher in Arizona throughout her life She died on May 11, 1983, at the age of 65, in Tucson Henderson is known almost entirely for short stories about The People The People are a race of sensitive, human looking aliens with psychic abilities who are separated after crash landing on Earth but come to find each other over a period of many years Publishing her People stories in the leading science fiction magazines of the 50 s, 60 s and 70 s, Henderson became a pioneer in many areas of science fiction literature She was one of the first female science fiction writers, and was one of an even smaller number who wrote openly as a woman, without using male sounding pseudonyms or initials James Tiptree, Jr C.L Moore etc Henderson was one of the first in science fiction to truly take young people seriously and write expressive, mature stories from their point of view She drew on her experience as a teacher of young people, and was able to bring a rare level of insight to her use of young characters Henderson s youthful protagonists are neither adults forced into young bodies, nor are they frivolous caricatures They are very human, complete souls, yet marked by authentic signs of youth and innocence Interestingly enough, Lois McMaster Bujold and Orson Scott Card, both of whom mention Henderson as an important early influence, have also been among the most successful chroniclers of young people, with such Hugo and Nebula award winning novels as Falling Free and Ender s Game Her books and stories about The People were the basis for the movieThe People, 1972, starring William Shatner and Kim Darby Despite similarities, both Escape to Witch Mountain, 1975, and Return to Witch Mountain, 1978, were a result of books by Alexander Key.

I think they're SF stories of thei [...]


    2. LOVE Love love Zenna Henderson!I listened to every review on YouTube that mentioned her -- now to re-read "Walking Aunt Daid"


    3. Es un libro de ciencia ficción ya que hay extraterrestres con poderes especiales. Pero eso es sólo la excusa. El libro versa sobre todo lo bueno que las personas podemos hacer. Habla de generosidad, de amor al prójimo, del placer de ayudar a los que lo necesitan, Esto es lo que nos enseñan estos seres venidos de otro mundo. Son un espejo donde mirarnos, si queremos.La autora demuestra una sensibilidad inmensa. Era profesora y no he podido remediar sentir envidia por sus alumnos.
