Zoom Author Reading—Lawrence Winkler—The Next Casebook of Doctor Sababa

Come listen to Lawrence Winkler share his latest novel.

Perhaps you want to spend some more special time with Doctor Sababa, our Internal Medical consultant at Harbour City Regional Hospital. He will amuse 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.
