Godbody Author:Theodore Sturgeon From "one of the greatest writers of science fiction and fantasy who ever lived" (Stephen King) here is a masterpiece of fiction--a haunting, meaningful and at times erotic novel that describes a wondrous transformation that takes place in an American town when a charismatic, Christ-like figure mysteriously appears in its midst. — Godbody--sweetl... more »y innocent, as naked of guile as he is of worldly trappings--has returned to remind mankind of what it has lost. He will touch only a few lives before his preordained end, but they will be forever transformed. As one by one the members of a small rural town fall under Godbody's spell, the burdens that had weighed down on them disappear, and a new vision of life as it can--and should--be suddenly reveals itself to them.
Robert Heinlein writes in his introduction that "Godbody" is "'The Last of the Wine.' And the best...the capstone of Sturgeon's art. Read it, enjoy it, reread it, give it to someone you love."« less
