Ladymidnight rated it really liked it Jan 13, Faith Hakimian rated it really liked it Jan 18, DarkSapiens rated it it was amazing Jul 22, Sarah rated it it was amazing Apr 20, My pleasure, Keith. There's a lot modern medicine doesn't yet understand about how our bodies behave under the conditions in which we evolved -- much less under wildly different conditions.

So: Using Medicine in SF was an educational read aside from its significant value as a writing resource. Happy new year, Sir. I too thank you for your recommendation. Looks very impressive. I hope it is written in plain enough to me.

Jaguar, thank you for your note. I hope you enjoy Using SF in Medicine. As for the novel and movie you named, I am not familiar with either. Thank you very much, Sir. I'm trying to purchase "Using Medicine in Science Fiction" on kindle, but haven't complete yet. I continue. Debating whether to make the purchase. Unfortunately, a number of inaccuracies and inapt metaphors in the sample first chapter left me dubious as to the overall value of the work.

I'm hopeful that later chapters are better aligned to the author's expertise.

About This Item

Post a Comment. Most of you, polling has demonstrated, come to this blog to read about science and SF. Available since September , despite the copyright date. Of course, we SF aficionados are more open than most to the possibility of time travel :- And to further muddy the temporal waters, this book would have had a place in my best reads summary if I hadn't wanted to post recommendations early within the recently concluded holiday shopping season. Of course there are still post-holiday clearance sales and in theory unspent gift cards Stratmann is a cardiologist and an SF author, supremely qualified to have authored such a book.

Full disclosure: Henry and I are friends -- but that's not the reason for the rave review that follows. Check it out on Amazon Science fiction is replete, overtly or otherwise, with medicine and biology. Astronauts adapting -- for better or worse -- to micro gravity.
