Theodore Sturgeon was considered one of the most influential writers of the so-called "Golden Age" of science fiction fostered by editor John Campbell from 1938 to 1950. Sturgeon was particularly appreciated for his literary style, his attention to character and his treatment of important social issues such as sex, war, and the alienation of those felt to be different from the norm.


Sturgeon's most famous work may be the science fiction novel 'More Than Human', an expansion of "Baby Is Three". More Than Human won the 1954 International Fantasy Award (for SF and fantasy) as the year's best novel and the Science Fiction Writers of America ranked "Baby is Three" number five among the "Greatest Science Fiction Novellas of All Time" to 1964.
