"90% of science fiction is crap".

According to Philip Klass (William Tenn), Sturgeon said this in 1951, at a talk at New York University . It was subsequently included in a talk at the 1953 Worldcon in Philadelphia. He said, "90% of science fiction is crap." This upset his audience, but then he added, "90% of everything is crap."
