Up until one minute ago, Gurlick was merely a specimen of homo sapiens, and a substandard specimen at that. But now this craven, seething, barely literate drunk has ingested a spore that traveled light-years before touching down on our planet, a spore that has in turn ingested Gurlick, turning him into a host for the Medusa, a hive mind so vast that it encompasses the life forms of a billion planets-a hive mind that is determined to ingest Earth as well. In this mind-wrenching classic of science fiction, visionary novelist Theodore Sturgeon places humanity on a collision course with an organism of unimaginable power and malevolence and reminds us how much we depend on each other-or even on a wretch like Gurlick. Crackling with suspense, overflowing with invention, and startling in its compassion, To Marry Medusa is a tour de force from one of the great imaginers of the golden age of speculative fiction.

Professional reviews

"With a powerful bass voice, Stefan Rudnicki knocks the dust off this dated classic and flexes his vocal prowess to drag the listener into a world of chaos as Planet Earth battles against an alien hive. He glides through a half-dozen accents without missing a beat and when appropriate, adds occasional touches of groveling and whining. Rudnicki has no problem changing points of view. With professional ease he transitions from sultry vixen to Italian assassin and moves on to drunken Chicago outcast. This signature work from Theodore Sturgeon is considered to be one of the foundations of the sci-fi genre, and now that it's available as an audiobook, it will be a must-listen for fans. P.S.F.
