Dunno...I haven't read the story (but suspect one could find it in THE FANTASTIC SAINT), and where Saint maven David Pringle is apparently dubious about its Sturgeon connection (and thinks it's one of many Cleve Cartmill ST ghost jobs), nor the novel in question, which Pringle is pretty sure is Sturgeon's.
