       Additional Information  
      Star Surgeon Conway, Burse Murchison, and the doctors of Sector general were used to big problems and wonderfully strange patients-yet even tentacled Chaiders, elephantine Traithans and the spidery empath Dr. Prilicia were baffled. The denizens of this weird planet included wheelshaped rolling sentients without hearts, leechlike healers without brains, and vast carpets of writhing flesh. One of the species had invented a quasi-living tool that could change galactic medicine. if only Conway and his staff could find it. He knew that to solve the mystery he would need all the aline talents of Sector General's interstellar staff to mount an unparalleled major operation. The Sector General Staff was used to big problems-but could they heal a 900 mile long carpet of flesh?
