Now Bookcasting: Scanners Live in Vain by Cordwainer Smith
Man has conquered space, but not without costs. To maintain the space lanes, Scanners must undergo an operation in which their brain is severed from their sensory inputs to block the Pain of Space. Martel has made this sacrifice. He must monitor his vital functions via implanted dials and instruments in his chest. His only respite from this isolated existence is his ability to occasionally "cranch" and return to some sort of normalcy with his wife, Luci. But now a man named Adam Stone has claimed that he has a found a way to travel in space without the use of the Scanners. Through the twisted logic of the community of Scanners,What happens when Scanners Live In Vain? Cordwainer Smith's (aka Paul Linebarger) master has been Voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America as one of the great stories of all time and is included in "The Science Fiction Hall of Fame" anthology.
