RE: RARA-AVIS: Some Details About The Caviar Feast

(Sturgeon's own pun long before it was mine.)

"A Way of Thinking" is one of the most hardboiled horror stories one could possibly want. While "It" and "Shottle Bop" and not a few others are simply brilliant horror fiction, of a kind a RAvian might find very enjoyable.

"Mr. Costello, Hero" and "Affair with a Green Monkey" may or may not be particularly agreeable to readers here... TM (SOME OF YOUR BLOOD not hardboiled, but pretty noirish)

My knowledge of Sturgeon is slight, but it does seem that his novel "Some of Your Blood" (which I only know by reputatiom) is the title most in accord with an R.A. *Weltanschauung*.

I will, however, recommend his "More Than Human" (three connected novellas) to anyone and everyone.
