***Locus Recommended Reading

“The late Ted Sturgeon was one of the greats. If you believe what Harlan Ellison says in his foreword to The Nail and the Oracle, Volume XI: The Complete Stories of Theodore Sturgeon, he may even have been the greatest SF writer ever. Sure, he was quirky, but he could write like an angel and he well deserves the adulation directed toward his ghost since his death in 1985. The present volume collects a dozen of his works from 1957 to 1970, ‘his prime story-writing years.’ One of the stars of the collection is the famous ‘If All Men Were Brothers, Would You Let One Marry Your Sister?’ Another is ‘Runesmith,’ cowritten with Harlan. For the rest, order a copy. Sturgeon, as long as he’s been gone, is not a writer one regrets reading.”
