MoreThe Ultimate Egoist, the 1st volume of The Complete Stories of Theodore Sturgeon, contains the late authors earliest work, written from 1937 to 1940. Although Sturgeons reach was limited to the lengths of the short story and novelette, his influence was strongly felt by even the most original science fiction stylists, including Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke and Gene Wolfe, each of whom contributes a laudatory foreword. The more than 40 stories here showcase Sturgeons masterful knack with clever, O. Henry-ish plot twists, sparkling character development and almost archetypal, why didnt I think of that? story ideas. Early Sturgeon masterpieces include It, about the violence done by a creature spontaneously born from garbage and mud, and Helix the Cat, about an inventors bizarre encounter with a disembodied soul and the cat that saves it. Sturgeons unique genius is timelessly entertaining.Pages: xvi + 387
