Theodore Sturgeon (1918-1985) is ranked with Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Ray Bradbury, and Arthur C. Clarke in the pantheon of science fiction writers. He wrote several Star Trek episodes, including one that introduced the legendary Vulcan hand greeting and the phrase "Live long and prosper."
"Sturgeon wrote miraculous short stories ... Sturgeon found his urgency directed in becoming the John Dos Passos, the William Faulkner, the Ring Lardner, the James Thurber, the Virginia Woolf of science fiction." --Jonathan Lethem "A terrific writer; I enjoyed every word he published." --Robert Heinlein "One of the best writers in America ... Sturgeon is a master storyteller certain to fascinate all sorts of readers, not only science fiction fans." --Kurt Vonnegut "Sturgeon's stories have an emotional impact unmatched by almost any other writer." --Arthur C. Clarke "Sturgeon's often tender explorations of alien minds were as carefully worked out as Faulkner's exploration of the mind of the idiot in The Sound and the Fury. His emphasis on psychology instead of blasters prepared the way for most modern masters of the science fiction genre." --Stephen King "Sturgeon wrote with power, range, vividness, fierce insight, and above all, with a fine prose style. I turn to him expecting to find all the pleasures of literature, and he never disappoints." --Michael Chabon, bestselling author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
