Daniel Keyes may not have written much science fiction but his novella FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON published in 1959 won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story. The subsequent novel published in 1966 was joint winner of the Nebula Award for Best Novel.

This tale of medical experimentation touches many themes and in the last 50+ years has been frequently voted a classic. If you haven’t ever read it you have now run out of excuses and if it doesn’t bring a tear to your eye you have already ceased to be human!
