Summary (From the publisher):

Instead of crossing the River Styx in a gilded barge, headed for the underworld, Theodore Sturgeon ferries us across galaxies in a rocket built on human - and inhuman - passions. Instead of an oar, Sturgeon wields a scalpel, slicing through the starstream and showing us worlds millions of light years away - or just inside our souls.

What do you do when you've always wanted to go to the stars, but your bully-boy space-cadet brother is getting there first - until an alien makes you an offer you can't refuse?

How does a therapist cure a social misfit when the usual method of 'reassembling' won't work?

When the human urge is to pair off, what's a trapped alien to do when it desperately needs a menage a trois?

How do you help a beautiful telepath condemned to exile and torture when her jail is Earth and her torture is music?
