I have been a Sturgeon fan for a long time. I read 'Some of your Blood' a good thirty years ago ... it is one of those stories that remains in the mind.

Zorpheus - I'm so hip I have difficulty seeing over my pelvis.

It is a novella about a GI (wartime) who writes a letter home to his girl friend. The censor is freaked out by one sentence in the letter and refers it to the base psychiatrist. The whole story deals with the sessions between the GI and the shrink, who tries to get to the bottom of why the guy wrote what he wrote. The reader doesn't discover until the last page what the sentence is.

Sounds kind of interesting. I'll have to check it out. I'm always looking for interesting books to read in my spare time.
