“The World Well Lost” by Theodore Sturgeon
The World Well Lost is a short-story by horror and SF author Theodore Sturgeon, first published in 1953.
It has been regarded as the first SF text with a positive depiction of homosexuality. The legend tells that John W. Campbell, editor of one of the most important SF magazines at the time, not only rejected the story for his own magazine, but also called every other SF magazines editors in order to prevent it to be published anywhere.
I couldn’t find this story anywhere on the internet, and given that I possess a paper copy I thought I’d share. Sturgeon truly is an amazing narrator, I highly recommend reading his fiction, especially the horror/creepy stories.
Also, I made a facebook cover thingie with the Luteces.
Has someone transcribed their quotes somewhere? I remember I liked one in particular but I was too stupid to screencap and now I can’t remember it.
