Wish I could find classic sci fi writers that I like that write like Sturgeon Imagine this the majority of his stories are genre sci fi but it features believable and interesting characters This short story collection has some really great stories and in retrospect I don t think any of them are genre stories The only story I really didn t like was the first one To Here and the Easel Two stories are tied for my favorite It s You and Take Care of Joey If you want to read some beautifully written short stories this is a wonderful collection

Sturgeon Is Alive and Well Summary ↠ 8 review Ö eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ó Theodore Sturgeon Eleven stories first published 1954 71Foreword 1971 • essayTo Here the Easel 1954 • novella Slow Sculpture 1970 • novelette It's You 1970 • story. This is an excellent collection of science fiction and other short stories by an under appreciated writer The title is a reference to Sturgeon s long periods of apparent writer s block mentioned in the Foreword and undoubtedly alluded to in the novella To Here and the Easel Sturgeon points out that his notorious fallow periods were usually followed by times of great productivity during which he might write a short story in a day or less I read that Jack Kerouac wrote his novel ON THE ROAD in a short creative burst and I suspect that both writers spent a lot of time composing in their heads before sitting down at their writing desks ALIVE AND WELL is not all science fiction this collection is about human relationships that sometimes are made understandable in a science fiction framework but it is the relationships that matter In Sturgeon s words You can not write good fiction about ideas You can only write good fiction about peopleMany of the relationships in these stories are doomed to failure Jerry s Gap is about complete lack of communication at what proves to be a turning point in a young man s life It s You a sentence which bookends the story itself is about what at first seems to be an idyllic love affair which collapses under its own weight One of the darkest points of view on communication is found in The Girl Who Knew What They Meant There are some optimistic stories notably Slow Sculpture Crate and Suicide which mixes a dark title with a hopeful outcome Other recurrent themes are the need to ask the uestion that no one else has thought of the belief that change is not only desirable but necessary if civilization is to flourish and the contrary force of vested interests opposing bold new ideas In than one story we meet a brilliant loner with training in than one discipline who does ask the next uestion and finds himself an outsider in a world controlled by people and institutions who have become conservative in the extreme strenuously opposed to new ideas and hence to progressSturgeon balances his pessimistic view of authority with a heroically optimistic view of the individual His protagonists bring light to a dark world and do good for humanity over humanity s objections
