The Aliens Among Us
Ballantine, 1969. Words: 85000.
"...most of James White's writing has been concerned with the
reconciliation of human to alien, and of human with human.
The theme may be common to many writers. But White's stories
of medicine as it may be practiced several hundred years in the
future are uniquely imaginative, demonstrating again and again
the fertility of his ideas and the humanity -- or should one say,
the alienity -- of his approach?" (blurb).
Contents: 'Countercharm'; 'To Kill or Cure'; 'Red Alert';

Warrior' (see under Short Stories).
