Series: Sector General

Summary (From the publisher):

On Sector General, the gigantic hospital wheeling in space, the medical staff are fanatically tolerant of all forms of intelligent life. No case is too big, too small, too hopeless - or too weird.

The newest arrival is Lonvellin - a crazy, mixed-up demigod, probably imortal and possibly a cannibal. With its five thick tentacles, snail-like base and featureless head, it's a rare species - but to Senior Medical Officer Conway it's just another patient, with a cancerous skin condition and badly in need of psychiatric assistance.

Little does he know that a cure for Lonvellin could lead to interstellar war - with Sector General at its very heart...
