Up until one minute ago, Gurlick was merely a specimen of homo sapiens, and a substandard specimen at that. But now this craven, seething, barely literate drunk has ingested a spore that traveled light-years before touching down on our planet, a spore that has in turn ingested Gurlick, turning him into a host for the Medusa, a hive mind so vast that it encompasses the life forms of a billion planets—a hive mind that is determined to ingest Earth as well.
In this mind-wrenching classic of science fiction, visionary novelist Theodore Sturgeon places humanity on a collision course with an organism of unimaginable power and malevolence and reminds us how much we depend on each other—or even on a wretch like Gurlick.
