Kate Wondering if I should expand this to be any sort of interspecies friendship. Then I could include Delan the Mislaid (there's an alliance of several species working to bring peace), the Valdemar books focusing on the Tayledras (who coexist with a few types of non-humans), the Petaybee series (a sentient planet), and maaaybe a few books with alien "bond animals" like Dragonriders of Pern (specifically Dragonsdawn) and Storyteller.


message 2: by Bogi (new)

Bogi Takács Thank you so much for this list!!

Just a note that I added the Caroline Yoachim anthology because it has an IMO absolutely wonderful interspecies diplomacy and friendship story ("Press Play to Watch It Die") but not all stories in it fall under the rubric.

A Fisherman of the Inland Sea by Ursula K. Le Guin is similar, I think the last 3 stories/novelettes in the book are related to the theme, but not all of the stories. (Also ensemble cast spaceship / found family.)


message 3: by Diane (new)

Diane One of my favorite themes!
Which others in James White's Sector General series do you think ought to be added? It's been a while since I've read them.
