The Man Who Lost the Sea (Guest narrator: Shig Vigintitres)

by Sturgeon, Theodore

Sturgeon’s a presence which should have been established here long ago, and I was grateful beyond expression when tonight’s guest reader volunteered to represent him. That said, I was only told there was “this Theodore Sturgeon story I’ve always wanted to read.”

So, when I was sent a story that I didn’t know, I was allowed to sit back and listen and discover and marvel, as you should. If you really want my experience, be on your third glass of wine before you listen. It’s worth tomorrow’s headache.

    Oh man! What a mighty fine reading of a mighty strange story. But those last 30 seconds just BLEW. ME. AWAY.

    I’ve never been able to read this one all the way through in one go, without bawling like a baby. A true masterpiece by a Master of SF
