    1. I first read Monsters and Medics as a teenager having borrowed it from my local library. At the time, I read a lot of short story collections, virtually all of which I have long since forgotten. But there was something about this particular book that stuck in my mind. I re-read it a few years later, borrowing it again from the same library. Now, having tracked down a copy I have given it a third reading, and it is still as fresh as it was the first time around. The longest and most popular of th [...]


    2. I am a fan of James White and his brand of mostly violence-free space opera and enjoyed this collection. The meat of the collection was the novella Second Ending about the last man on Earth and the robots who keep him alive. This was a poignant and well-told piece, showing the loneliness of the position with realistic cracks in the protagonist's sanity, and the sort of petty and pointless revenges that he would take out on the robots who wouldn't let him die.Of the other stories, Counter Securit [...]


    3. This collection contains the novella Second Ending, which takes up nearly half the book. I understand it was later expanded to a full-length novel, but I've never seen a copy of that.Also included:Introduction: Reality in Science FictionCounter SecurityDogfight (NB this is not the first story of Grawlya-Ki and MacEwan, which I believe is in Aliens among us. Yes, it is--it's called 'Tableau')Nuisance ValueIn Loving Memory (I'm rather dubious about the idea that elimination of differences is the o [...]


    4. This one is actually a 3.5. The first story in this anthology,'Second Ending' was a really good tale of near-immortality through repeated suspended animation sessions. The other stories were all well-written and ranged from OK to good. If you're a fan of James White's books, this is definitely worth checking out. If you've never heard of him, it's a nice introduction to his style of writing.


    5. Another short story collection, this one with no Sector General stories. Some stories are better than others, but none are bad. If you want time travel via cold sleep, battle-planning computers, and extraterrestrial centaurs, then this is your book.
