HardCover Binding. Year: 1980. ISBN: 0026100606. Stefan is misfortune's child. He has few friends, an unreliable father, an overbearing brother, and only the promise of a gypsy's prophecy for future happiness. Try as he might, he could please no one, least of all himself. He knows that he is an unman, an inferior being with no redeeming qualities-after all, his father tells him so every day. So with little regret and even less ceremony, Stefan leaves home to pursue the one thing that could change his life-the girl of his dreams. He begins a quest that carries him through mad adventures with aliens, inventors, and dreamers, all drawn to Stefan for his honesty and kindness.
