I've been a fan since Blood Music and greatly appreciate your imagination. However, I'm trying to remember which book of yours (read quite a while ago) had aliens who were made up of multiple snake-like creatures, of a single consciousness and communicated by aroma. I'm ready to be embarrassed if the author isn't you. Thanks or apologies in advance. If not you, do this sound familiar? Best, Chuck Berman

You've come to the right man. Such creatures appeared in "Scattershot" and more extensively in ANVIL OF STARS. In the latter, they were referred to as the Brothers.
