James White (author)

James White (April 7, 1928 - August 23, 1999) was a prolific author of science fiction novellas, short stories and novels.

He is probably best-known as the author of the Hospital Station (more properly known as Sector General) series of novels. The first novels were assembled from strung-together short stories, but later Sector General adventures were full-length books. The first Sector General novel was published in 1962, and the last was published posthumously in 1999.

His book "The Watch Below" is considered by many afficianados to be his finest work - a claustrophobic book describing the travails of parallel survivors of war (human) and accident (alien).
