The eight stories in Visions and Venturers show all the facets of his talent: a blend of science fiction and fantasy, full of unusual ideas, peopled with memorable and sympathetically-observed characters.In these stories you will meet: a telepathic human race so advanced that they have dispensed with mechanical civilisation- a witch living in the heart of the Louisiana bayou- a wonderful device which helps shy, introverted people to become confident and outgoing- a writer who can produce the most moving stories anyone has ever read - but only when he takes his typewriter to a certain hillside to work- a small boy with the talent to turn himself into anything he pleases- and many more.James Blish has called Sturgeon the finest conscious artist science fiction has yet had. The fascinatingly varied stories in Visions and Venturers help to show why he deserved that accolade.This book collects the following stories, which were first published between 1942 and 1965:The Hag Sèleen (1942)The Martian and the Moron (1949)The Nail and the Oracle (1965)Wont You Walk-- (1956)Talent (1953)One Foot and the Grave (1949)The Touch of Your Hand (1953)The Travelling Crag (1951)
