    One thought on “Alien Emergencies: A Sector General Omnibus”

    1. This second omnibus edition of James White s Sector General stories was much interesting for me than the first one, Beginning Operations Here we get to go out with Conway and his team in the ambulance ship Rhabwar and we meet a variety of new beings such as a Protector Of The Unborn, a cactus like plant creature with a sorry prickly temperament but the desire to change, and a huge worm being with who knows how many legs Or were they arms Or maybe both Anyway, there was also a story included her [...]

    2. The greatest idea ever James White s Sector General books made into a tv series What is it The biggest hospital in outer space Will need WETA, Henson, and an sfx budget the size of AlaskaE PITCH HOUSE meets MEN IN BLACK DEEP SPACE E.R Alien patients Alien diseases Alien surgeons Operating on humans No Andorians or Vulcans here aliens are ALIEN six foot radial lobsters empathic butterflies hyper heavy fire hydrants who eat with their skin tactless, shiny silver caterpillar water shrews that talk [...]

    3. This book makes the shift from the first book which is like meet new aliens who are injured to of a usual hospital setting just with a common set of aliens and the occasional special one The main character got to a place career wise with lots of stress I m content to part ways with him and wish him well I have bought the third book but I don t plan to read it, at least not yet Goodbye, Space Healer Continue doing God s work and appreciating the variety of species.

    4. More stories featuring aliens with bizarre medical problems Sure, why not The Sector General series remains a beloved locale and series of stories even nearly fifteen years since White s death dried up his seemingly inexhaustible supply of ways for the various beings and personalities on board the giant space hospital to interact with each other, to clash and come together to solve problems Some of it is perhaps based on novelty the number of decent medical SF novels can probably be counted on o [...]

    5. The first volume of this set, Beginning Operations, is OK but largely consists of a bunch of short stories crudely shoehorned into a couple of novels And that shows Here, White has got into his groove, puts together much better stories, and develops Murchison from a sentient pair of breasts into an actual character although you ll still hear plenty about her shape, and she definitely can t be promoted to diagnostician because women s brains, amiright If you liked the first volume, but found it f [...]

    6. I loved these novels of doctors in space as a teenager The challenges of treating new species, when communication was impossible and the charming, hypersensitive insectoid empath was my favorite character On re reading, the medical mysteries and solutions are just as charming In the later stories, Murchinson begins to get the respect she deserves The casual sexism is less in the later ones, but still a bit jarring when contrasted with the understanding shown other species Still, a terrific serie [...]

    7. Sector Twelve General Hospital is the galaxy s largest multi species hospital, built to be able to treat any of the many and varied species of the galactic Federation, not to mention any other intelligent life forms they encounter It is, to quote a line about another space station, a shining beacon in space, all alone in the night.There are three volumes bound together in this omnibus Ambulance Ship, Sector General and Star Healer The first deals with the establishment of Sector General s first [...]

    8. With the exception of the opening short story, Spacebird which was clearly cut from earlier editions for a reason , the second omnibus is every bit as good as, and in some parts better than, the first One story scared the pants off me, several moved me, and the whole added up to compelling medical mysteries and a good closing note for the careers of Conway, Murchison, and Prilicla The first two books, Ambulance Ship and Sector General, mainly involve the trio plus some new faces leaving the comf [...]

    9. Although the prose tends to be repetitive at times, and the author indulges in relatively mild, all things considered gender stereotypes, this collection of three short novels takes the premise begun in the first three Sector General novels and runs with it at full speed Alien physiology and psychology are well imagined, and I cannot help but admire and aspire to the sort of quick thinking and problem solving displayed by Senior Physician, and then Diagnostician in training Conway though I suspe [...]

    10. Interesting book An enjoyable read Interesting premise Aliens are friendly adn they can t transmit diseases between the species Extraterrestrial relations are advanced via cross species medical treatment These stories were written between 1962 and 2001 Sector General s lack of violence is maybe White s reaction to The Troubles in Ireland The stories remind me of a science fiction version of James Herriot and Maeve Binchy.

    11. I know it s quite aged and looks cheesy from the cover title subject but I was really impressed and highly entertained It was one of those where I was sad the stories were over and there were no to read.

    12. Not as good as the first omnibus Too repetitive After a certain point, the reader has understood the concept and does not bear repeating five times Anyone familiar with the series would ve have started from the foundational stories.

    13. This is the second omnibus of Sector General novels, comprised of three such It is very plain Space Opera stuff about a huge hospital serving lots of alien races The premise is full of potential but the stories are both corny and dull Yawn bookssboch p 1505

    14. The first two books of this omnibus are short stories, which are good The last book, a novel, was quite good.
