Theodore Sturgeon, The Rare Breed, Gold Medal, 1966


  1. How's this one as a reading experience?

  2. It seemed okay in 1966 or so, as I recall. The movie was okay, too. Maureen O'Hara, Jimmy Stewart, Brian Keith. You can probably plot it yourself.

  3. Bought it brand-new off the spinner rack at Trammell's Grocery Store, if I recall correctly. Todd, I already knew Sturgeon as a science fiction writer, and not one I particularly cared for at the time, so I was a little leery of a Western by him, even a novelization. But I thought it was okay. The fact that the chapters didn't have numbers bothered me. I'm not sure I had ever encountered that before.
