The Next Casebook of Doctor Sababa - Book coverWe all remember our favorite places. You must really love this place if you want to return so badly. Or perhaps you just want to spend some more special time with Doctor Sababa, our Internal Medical consultant at Harbour City Regional Hospital. He would have amused you with his wit and wisdom, and the spontaneous combustion and thrust they generate, often mixed in unequal proportions, as he dances with the devil in the pale moonlight. Before there was artificial intelligence, he was the real thing, working in the mysterious old ways of a masterless samurai.

Inside these pages live six more original stories of survival, suspense, and satire from the Sage of the Salish Sea. Sharpen your pencils. Put on your thinking caps. Like the Good Doctor, you will have six minutes to see each patient. Don’t be alarmed. Think of it as an intellectual challenge. With lives in the balance.

Welcome to the autumn of his Casebook. Welcome to Sababaland.

Author's Note: 

What is the Doctor Sababa Series about?
A savage satire about the fast-fading era of the medical savant—soon to be succeeded by committees, AI computer algorithms, and the cult of collaboration, extinguishing forever the glory of the clinical knight-errant.

About The Author

Lawrence Winkler is a physician, traveler, and natural philosopher. As a young man, he hitchhiked around the world, for five transformative years. His middle age morphed from medicine to manuscript, passionately documenting one man’s journey through life, in all its beauty and complexity. He lives on Vancouver Island, and the Coromandel Peninsula of New Zealand, with Robyn, tending their gardens and vineyards, and dreams.
