Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 - November 13, 2015

I'm linking up with Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings and Freda's Voice for Page 56. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Pick the closest book on your book stack and join the fun.

The Beginning:

"That's it Shipmaster," Pliij said from his helm board with obvious relief. "Target star dead ahead; relative motion and atmospheric density established, and vector computed."

From the first short story, The Price of Survival

Page 56:

It seems to me, Doctor, that the issue boils down to the question of when, exactly, the fetus comes a human being."

From The Final Report on the Lifeline Experiment

Both of the quotes are from short stories by Timothy Zahn. They are in the book Pawn's Gambit and Other Stratagems. I got the book from Amazon Vine yesterday and have just started to dip into it.
