The Hospital Ship (Ebook)

The Hospital Ship (Ebook)

By
Martin Bax

Originally published in 1976, Martin Bax’s seminal cult novel is back in print after three decades.

From harbours around the world, the hospital ship picks up casualties, emergency cases of men and women in states of severe psychic withdrawal and large groups of autistic children. They are victims of a worldwide disaster; a holocaust that spreads as the hospital ship sails on, struggling to save itself from its own lunacy.
