Shanna_redwind | 858 comments This was an odd science fiction, I think by Lester Del Rey, but I'm not sure. There were paralleling stories one about people on a sunken ship and one about aliens in some sort of failing space ship. I don't remember much about the alien storyline.

It may have been war time. A large ship sank, but there was an air bubble left in one of the holds. There was bean seeds and a bicycle generator and lots of light bulbs to make a sort of hydroponic system.

The people entertained themselves by acting out the books and movies that they could remember. They lived there long enough to have babies.

This was a really odd story and it's killing me not knowing what it is.

Shanna_redwind | 858 comments That's the book. I'm really surprised that it was written by James White. I really enjoyed his Sector General novels, so I guess that accounts for why I actually finished this very unusual story.

This is solved, if someone could move it for me. Thank you very much.
