Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 078670103X, Mass Market Paperback)Author Theodore Sturgeon's style is to write a story of horror (but not a horror story). Sturgeon's warped and twisted character elicits the readers sympathy to the point that the reader--though horror struck by his deeds--wishes a happy solution for the monster. Sturgeon is a Hugo, Nebula, and International Fantasy Awards winner and the author of four previous books.

Named one of the Horror Writers Association's Top 40 Horror Books of All Time, Theodore Sturgeon's gripping psychological thriller both fascinates and terrifies with the story of a troubled soldier and his bizarre, violent obsession with vampirismAt the height of an unnamed war, a soldier is confined for striking an officer. Referred to as George Smith in official papers and records, the prisoner comes under the observation of Army psychiatrist Philip Outerbridge, who asks the young man to put his story down on paper. The result is a shocking tale of abuse, violence, and twisted love, a personal history as dark and troubling as any the doctor has ever encountered. Believing the patient to be dangerously psychotic, Dr. Outerbridge must dig deeper into his psyche. And when the truth about the strange case of George Smith is fully revealed, the results will be devastating. Told through letters, transcripts, and case studies, Some of Your Blood is an extraordinary, poignant yet terrifying, genre-defying novel.?This ebook features an illustrated biography of Theodore Sturgeon including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the University of Kansas's Kenneth Spencer Research Library and the author's estate, among other sources.
