About the Story

A strange and very virulent virus is plaguing Earth. People are dying in their thousands and doctors are helpless to assist them. There is no known cure for the virus and it seems nobody is able to produce one. However, a chance discovery by one PROFESSOR H. ZOSTER - an eminent virologist - of a small fungus that could just contain the ingredients to produce the much-needed vaccine may be the answer to an awful lot of prayers.

From notes made when he was but a young lad and on his very first expedition, the professor has uncovered the source of a fungus that might just be able to eradicate the dreaded virus from the face of the Earth. Seemingly the fungus is to be found within the confines of a well and in some far-flung corner of the globe.

Professor H. Zoster is too old and frail to undertake such a perilous journey; it would be more than his fragile old frame could withstand. So it is decided that YOU are to be the one to undertake the task and to venture out in search of the ancient well and all it contains.

With the fate of the entire world in your hands you have no alternative other than to accept, so you begin your preparations for the journey.

Editorial Reviews

The usual problem with two word inputs to find the right synonyms. [...] Apart from that grumble it is up to Laurence's usual slick standard with good problems, plenty of them and logical solutions. Search is much needed, sometimes more than once in a location. Everything has a use ... even a plaster covering a sore on your hand comes in useful. There are a number of hints in the text and descriptions of objects and locations, so you need to be careful not to miss anything.
