Reviews

Sturgeon is an odd SF author. Much of what he wrote is not even SF, it's fantasy. This is an interesting book and very much Sturgeon. Not really my cup of tea.

I actually don't like Ellery, and his relationship with his father is also not one I care for, but the puzzles are fairly done and usually ingenious.
