Andrea K Höst

Australian writer of science fiction and fantasy.
Sector General - James White Four short stories which focus on the puzzle solving and the medical care of weird aliens. This one is basically "space ambulance".In the couple of decades between the first books in this series and this one, the author has noticed that women might also be doctors, and there's less painful sexism to wade through. Murchison has been transformed from nurse to pathologist, though a good portion of her involvement in the story still revolves around her appearance.The final story of the book is ironically focused on an alien which starts out as an inexperienced female and as it matures becomes experienced, 'intelligent' and male.
