Read full description of the books:



Weirdly timely for a book written in 1972. It is 2012. The cost of healthcare has gotten out of hand because people are living longer and having fewer babies. There aren't enough working young people to support the overwhelming cost of healthcare. The economy is reeling from the 2010 stock-market crash. Eugenics policies are in place requiring sterilization in exchange for healthcare to everyone who doesn't pass the eugenics standards. So, there is an underground healthcare industry and the Bladerunners smuggle medical supplies to underground doctors and assist them as they practice medicine in people's homes. This prescient and fun book tells the story of a Bladerunner and his doctor and the dangers they face when everything comes apart.

Don't expect the story that is in the Ridley Scott movie. They have nothing to do with one another.

He was a friend of fellow author Avram Davidson. Robert A. Heinlein dedicated his 1964 novel Farnham's Freehold to Nourse. Heinlein in part dedicated his 1982 novel Friday to Nourse's wife Ann.
His novel The Bladerunner lent its name to the Blade Runner movie, but no other aspects of its plot or characters, which were taken from Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? In the late 1970s an attempt to adapt The Bladerunner for the screen was made, with Beat Generation author William S. Burroughs commissioned to write a story treatment; no film was ever developed but the story treatment was later published as the novella, Blade Runner (a movie).
His novel Star Surgeon has been recorded as a public domain audio book at LibriVox
His pen names included "Al Edwards" and "Doctor X".
