The Aliens Among Us

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'; 'Tableau'; 'The Conspirators'; 'The Scavengers'; 'Occupation: Warrior' (see under Short Stories).
