    One thought on “General Practice: A Sector General Omnibus

    1. I have officially overdosed once again on James White s Sector General space hospital stories This is the third and final omnibus edition I will read, because it is the last one I own.General Practice is made up of two stories, one called Code Blue Emergency and the other titled Genocidal Healer This last, according to the introduction, is the only offering in all my three omnibus editions that was written as an intentional novel and was not merely previously published stories stitched together [...]


    2. It s not a crazy question to ask if at almost seven books into a series where all the stories revolve around a somewhat simple premise hospitals in space said series is still worth reading And if you had asked me that after the end of the last volume I might have given you a hesitant I guess , as the Sector General series seemed to be slipping into a cozy rut, with all the doctors and nurses romping around a friendly and familiar medical terrain, while the friendly but constantly scowling Chief [...]


    3. I enjoy this series it s generally very light indeed, but entertaining, and manages to have plots without every having a Big Bad something that s pretty unusual The theology in the second novel here, though, was pretty narrowly Christian, to the point having having that be the norm across the galaxy I think a nuanced approach would have been interesting, and several of the monotheist theological problems are not issues in polytheistic systems Still, a fun read.


    4. The first part, about Cho Thrat was enjoyable The second part, apparently the last Sector General book, dragged quite a bit for me in the middle, but I m glad I stuck with it The ending was fully satisfactory.


    5. There is a subgenre of science fiction that is not generally recognized that to make up a word I will call xeno anthropological science fiction It is characterized by positing an extraterrestrial alien sentient species and then exploring the ramifications of its culture Quite often the exploration is done by assuming misunderstandings between the aliens and humans I tend to think these stories could be done better if the alien cultures were simply made to be human cultures Geographically and his [...]


    6. There s something utterly satisfying about finishing a Sector General novel, especially when you re as far along as this and are familiar with everyone s favourite space hospital I love the way that intriguing situations are created without any conflict or violence, or at least, that the conflict that does arise tends to be the result of misunderstandings or arguments about the best treatment.For anyone who s unfamiliar with the concept, Sector Twelve General Hospital is a giant multi species ho [...]


    7. An entertaining collection of medical science fiction stories concerning Sector General, a huge multispecies space hospital The author uses the stories to offer viewpoints and ideas on inter species relationships, ethics and beliefs The language and social customs are a bit dated but the author has some intriguing ideas and I find the Sector General universe, where there is a constant positive vibe despite troubles, similar to the Star Trek universe I would recommend pacing yourself on the stori [...]


    8. Inter species medcine and navigating the cross culture misunderstandings, it s a brilliant idea, well executed At times a little too contrived our main character is always at the centre of it but it gets 5 stars because it gets you relecting on the implicit cultural biases we have and how effort is always required to see these and to meaningfully overcome them Perhaps overcome is not the right description, it s about reognizing and respecting difference without being required to adopt other vie [...]
