Synopsis

Synopsis

Theodore Sturgeon was a genuine American master. Praised, revered, and even envied by the likes of Bradbury, Vonnegut, and King, his short stories contain some of his best work.

In "Thunder and Roses," soon after a nuclear Holocaust, a starlet gives one final performance during which she makes an odd request of the few remaining survivors. In perhaps his most praised story, "The Man Who Lost the Sea," a man riffs on memory and experience on the way to the story's powerful conclusion. And in the Hugo and Nebula Award-winning masterpiece, "Slow Sculpture," a young woman with a lump in her breast chances upon a strange healer. With unrivaled emotional impact, Theodore Sturgeon's stories are funny, lyrical, surprising, and provoking.

Praise

Praise

"The Sturgeon magic does not diminish with the years. His stories have a timeless quality and a universality which is beyond fantasy and science fiction." —Madeleine L'Engle

"To the extent that the short story is an art, Sturgeon is the American short story writer. The fact that he happened to be writing science fiction was a glorious accident." -Samuel R. Delany

"Sturgeon is a master storyteller certain to fascinate." -Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
