Four ingenious tales explore some of the wild-and not so wild-possibilities; the pressures, dangers, boredom man will have to suffer, and the courage it will take to get homo sapiens to live in a totally hostile element. Excitement, suspense and the thread of realistic humor hold together these four fast moving tales of the future."; 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall

"In the course of practicing deep-space medicine on the Galactic Rim, the multispecies staff of Sector General Hospital - a 384 level space station catering to patients from all known worlds - has seen more than its share of challenges, from alien species that resemble plague, and plagues caused by cafeteria food, to cafeteria food that resembles some alien species. They're a tough and experienced crew. But now the staff are facing a terrifying new development: Dr. O'Mara has been promoted to head of hospital. Worse, he's been given the job on a temporary basis, for just as long as it takes to train his own replacement as chief psychologist. After all these years, Dr. O'Mara 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."; Ex-Library; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall

4 White, James The Watch Below
New York Ballantine Books 1966 First Edition Mass Market Paperback Good 


Ballantine U2285, 189 pp. Paperback original, first edition. Spine a bit creased, rolled, reading crease, a little edge wear and rubbing, some cover creasing and scuffing, binding fairly tight. Pages tanned but text is clean and unmarked. A solid copy.

The empty oil tanker 'Gulf Trader' was nearing the Irish coast when she was torpedoed and sunk by a German U-Boat. Miraculously, a handful of people survived as it floated not far below the surface of the Atlantic:
"Somehow they had to find a way . . . Doc Radford, the Exec, Wallis, and First Officer Dickson, together with two badly injured and hysterical nurses. They were stuck.
"In the pitch dark, bleak cold of a hull equipped with oxygen tanks and stored food. And nothing else. Under several fathoms of water. Somehow they had to find a way to stay sane long enough to make a new home.

"And billions of miles out in space there were aliens - water breathers whose own world was gone forever in gusts of titanic heat. They too had to find a way - a way to survive for generations, long enough to find a new home . . .
"Aliens and humans alike had the same problem. This is how they met it. "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
