Recommends it for: fans of classic sci-fi
This is a full novel about Telzey Amberdon from The Telzey Toy, and although it is set earlier than the short stories, I'm glad I read it after I read the collection. Again, this is perfect vintage sci-fi and very enjoyable.

Also, a big bonus for me is that the dog lives.
A strong and young female heroine, with rapidly growing psi powers, who, of course, beats all odds. But at least she beats the odds with careful guile and planning. An enjoyable character that I'd like to read more of, though this particular book doesn't shine extremely bright.

Picked this up as a cheapie in the Kindle store. I loved the book when I was 18-19, but it didn't do it for me this time.
Read the original in Analog and liked it so much I bought it as a book.
Famously never describes his heroine, Telzey Amberdon.
