Rear cover synopsis:
"It's where human and alien medicine meet: a massive hospital space station on the Galactic Rim, with 384 levels and a multispecies staff of thousands.
In the course of practicing deep-space medicine, that staff has seen more than its share of challenges--from plagues caused by cafeteria food, to cafeteria food that resembles alien species. But now they face a disquieting new development: the terrifying Chief Psychologist, Dr. O'Mara, has been promoted to head of the hospital.
Worse, he's been given the job on a temporary basis, for just as long as it takes to train his own replacement. After that, he is up for mandatory retirement. Nobody at Sector General can begin to imagine what they'll do without him--assuming they last long enough to find out."
Major O'Mara is notified by Colonel Skempton, the hospital's Monitor Corps administrator, that he will be transferring to a new post and that O'Mara must temporarily fill his shoes before retiring. Prior to his retirement while acting as hospital administrator, O'Mara must select the most qualified person--human or alien--who is both qualified medically and psychologically.Read more ›
Think of it. A hospital .
Out in the middle of space.
Where every sentient race knows that if - oh forsake the bad luck -
There is a hospital .
Imagine it. I did. And then I read James White series, and said -------------
WOW!!!!!! And Thank you.
You put the words for imagination to literally fly.
Thank you, Mr. White.
This book should be read after the 'Beginig operataions' and 'Alien emergencies' to read the story
in a chronological order. Well, great author and great books even if nowadays we no longer use tapes for recordings ;-)
