Spider Robinson’s latest podcast features a Hugo and Nebula Award winning novellete by Theodore Sturgeon. Robinson calls Sturgeon ‘the second greatest Science Fiction author of all time’ (with Heinlein being #1). At the end of the podcast Robinson also promises two more Sturgeon stories in future podcasts. The reading for this one though begins about 10 minutes into the show. The first of the two is A Saucer Of Lonliness. It was first published in Galaxy Magazine’s February 1953 issue. It was adapted into a radio drama for X-Minus One in 1957. Was again adapted, for television this time, into a segment of one episode of The Twilight Zone in 1986.
This episode was dedicated to the memory of Theodore Sturgeon. And in 2004 it received a ‘Retro Hugo’ award.
