Slowboat Cargo is part of Larry Niven's Known Space series. It first appeared in print when it was serialized in the February, March, and April issues of If magazine with illustrations by Dan Adkins. It was subsequently published as the novel A Gift from Earth. A solitary mountain rises from the searing, toxic blackness of the planet. The organ banks are the center of this world. To them the subservient colonists contribute living limbs, and from them the overlords obtain the vital parts that keep them alive.
