Galaxy Magazine Interior Art - Febuary 1953

Not only is Spider Robinson an excellent writer, he’s also an excellent reader. He’s done professional audiobooks for Blackstone Audio. I’ve listened to a number of them, and he’s really good (Stardance is excellent!). He’s also reads some awesome stories for his podcast, Spider on the Web.

On his lastest podcast he reads a classic story by Theodore Sturgeon, A Saucer Of Loneliness, as well as a Sturgeon title I’m not familiar with called Suicide.

Theodore Sturgeon is best know for his excellent novel More Than Human. Stylistically, he is arguable the best SF writer of the Golden Age. In fact, I’d readily accept that argument.

The great old time radio show X Minus 1 also did a dramatization of A Saucer of Loneliness. [

]. It was also made into a Twilight Zone Episode during the series second go in 1987.

Spider Robinson also reads Sturgeon’s Slow Sculpture in a previous podcast episode. [

Spider also plays a lot of music on the podcast. His tastes have some overlap with my own, and I like most of it. Plus, he’s budds with David Crosby which is way, way cool!
