A special, New Arrivals post goes up on Wednesday. Don’t miss it!
Reading Alien Emergencies, the second Sector General omnibus of novels by James White (which I showed last week), I decided to get the others.
General Practice by James White [ORB 2003 trade paper, new] – science fiction omnibus containing two novels. James White’s Sector General novels are terrific. More like several long short stories strung together, each is a tale of a medical team working in or from Sector General Hospital, a 841 level inter-species medical facility. Great fun, often with intriguing puzzles. This omnibus contains the 7th and 8th Sector General novels.
Tales of Sector General by James White [Science Fiction Book Club 1999 hardcover, used] – science fiction omnibus containing three novels. This follows the book shown above, with the 9th, 10th and 11th novels.
I finished Alien Emergencies, consisting of three novels: Ambulance Ship , Sector General and Star Healer. Very enjoyable, and as you have read above I decided to get two more Sector General omnibus volumes. I finished The Saint Overboard (a 1935 novel) by Leslie Charteris. I’m thinking at this point I enjoy the Saint short stories more than this novel. I haven’t decided what to read next, but it will probably be a mystery.
Barbara finished Providence Rag by Bruce DeSilva, which she enjoyed, and has started The Tip of A Bone by local Portland author Christine Finlayson, yet another book we got at Left Coast Crime in February.
What new books did you get, and what have you been reading?
