Visitor at Large
|Visitor at Large
Despite the vast resources of medical and surgical skill available,
resources which were acknowledged second to none in the civilized
galaxy, there had to be times when a case arrived in Sector General
for which noting whatever could be done.
'Visitor at Large' marks the Sector General debut of Dr Prilicla,
the insectile Cinrusskin empath whom every perceptive reader loves
to love. Conway and Prilicla find themselves treating a sick
amoeboid SRTT alien that can never, ever, fall physically sick.
But its psychological traumas would flummox Dr Anthony Clare himself,
even if this patient at (very!) large didn't flatten his couch.
I'll conclude by telling you that White's solution to the problem
still holds water. No, please. Don't bother to thank
