Books: Theodore Sturgeon’s overlooked centenary plus reviews and book news

This year is Theodore Sturgeon’s centenary, and if you’re wondering “who?,” you’re not alone. Once widely read (and still beloved in some science fiction communities, as a few on Twitter pointed out to me) Sturgeon no longer has the name recognition of contemporaries Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov. Like Harlan Ellison, he wrote for the original “Star Trek” — we have him to thank for Spock saying “live long and prosper” — but it’s his fiction, particularly his short stories, that should put him in the pantheon, writes Scott Bradfield, who was once Sturgeon’s neighbor in Silver Lake.
