From the inside dust jacket cover: "A mob of invisible stowaways making mischief on a World War I freighter, a telepathic man communicating with his unconscious child, a team of astronauts on a mission to a planet that drives men mad...these are the stuff of Sturgeon's stories.
Written between 1939 and 1955, the (14) short stories chosen for ALIEN CARGO represent Sturgeon's finest early work.
'IT', a tale of consummate horror tht Sturgeon says wrote itself...
'POKERFACE', which features a visitor from a future time who gets more than he bargains for in the present.
'BRIGHT SEGMENT', a tale of an isolated inarticulate handyman, the woman who suddenly enters his life, and what he must do to keep her.
'SHADOW, SHADOW ON THE WALL', which delves into a boy's imagination, his shadow pictures, and the things beyond the walls of our homes-and the walls of our minds.
'THE TRAVELING CRAG', wherein a writer, with a little help from his friends of this world and elsewhere, changes his writing and the world."
