A quantum leap in the development of science fiction as an art. --Washington Post
A masterpiece of provocative storytelling. --New York Herald Tribune
The corpus of science fiction written by Theodore Sturgeon is the single most important body of science fiction written by an American to date. -- Samuel R. Delany
He (Sturgeon) brought things to science fiction that had never been there before: eloquence, passion, a love of life, and a fiery poetry that found its natural expression in prose. --Robert Silverberg --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
THEODORE STURGEON (1918-1985) is one of the great figures of the golden age of science fiction. He wrote over 200 stories, several novels, film and TV scripts (including two of the most famous episodes of the original Star Trek), plays, and dozens of nonfiction reviews and essays. His many literary awards include the Hugo, the Nebula, and the International Fantasy Award. His most famous novel, More Than Human, won serious academic recognition as literature, a rarity among science-fiction works of the '50s. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
