James White's novels and stories of Sector General, the vast outer-space hospital that treats humans and aliens alike, have entertained generations of SF fans. Replete with human and alien interaction and intricate puzzle plots, the Sector General tales are ingenious and exciting, and shot through with a healer's anger at irrationality and destructiveness. They are dramas of rationality, tempered with humour and a keen eye for the remarkable in the everyday. This omnibus includes the titles Hospital Station, Star Surgeon and Major Operation, along with a new introduction by Brian Stableford.
