KU to House Important Science Fiction Papers

Each year, the University of Kansas awards the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award to a distinguished science fiction writer through its Center for the Study of Science Fiction. Now, the estate of Theodore Sturgeon has donated an important archive to the Center. Beth Whitaker of the KU Libraries says that the long-standing relationship between Sturgeon and the University was a major factor in the donation.

Theodore Sturgeon is widely regarded as an key figure in the so-called "Golden Age" of science fiction writing. He is credited as an influence on writers ranging from Kurt Vonnegut to Stephen King to Ray Bradbury. The donated papers include a manuscript of his novel "More Than Human," notes for episodes of the television show "Star Trek" and his correspondence with authors including Isaac Asimov and Harlan Ellison.
