On July 28th, 2011, Noël Sturgeon (Theodore Sturgeon's daughter and literary trustee), Elspeth Healey (KU's Special Collections Librarian), and our very own James Gunn (CSSF's founding director) gave an excellent radio interview about the life, works and literary papers of Theodore Sturgeon.

Sturgeon (1918 – 1985), a highly influential writer from science fiction's "Golden Age" (and beyond), wrote many science fiction short stories (recently collected in thirteen volumes), several novels including the well-known More than Human, and three screenplays for the original Star Trek series. He also published under the pseudonyms Ellery Queen (along with many other authors) and Frederick R. Ewing. (Fuller bibliographies can be found at the Theodore Sturgeon Literary Trust and Emory Professor Eric Weeks's page. The Trust also has more extensive biographical information.)
