aka Frederick R Ewing

Theodore Sturgeon was born Edward Hamilton Waldo in New York City. He later adopted his stepfather's surname and took on a new first name. While still a teenager he went to sea for three years. He began publishing sf in 1939 but stopped producing it after a few years and went abroad. He began writing again in 1946 and, in the next fifteen years, produced almost all of the work for which he is famous. He is one of sf's great short story writers and his acclaimed novels include More than Human, the winner of the International Fantasy Award for 1954, The Cosmic Rape and Venus Plus X.

L Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XV (1999)
(Writers of the Future, book 15)
Algis Budrys and L Ron Hubbard
"I wish this book had been around when I started to write!"
thumb
Nightmare Flower (1992)
Elizabeth Engstrom
"Behind [Engstrom's] soft-voiced style is power, is surprise, is - well, ferocity."
thumb
Vampire Junction (1984)
(Timmy Valentine, book 1)
S P Somtow
"Terrible things happen in this book. It's about rock music, about mass hysteria, about vampires, about horror. One comes out knowing, and caring about a panoply of new friends and acquaintances, living and dead and unalive."
