SF novel, first published in 1999: no 8 in the SF Masterworks series.

''The Fifth Head of Cerberus (fix-up 1972), comprises three separate tales, the title story previously published (in Orbit 10, anth 1972, ed Damon Knight) and the others original to the book, but all so closely linked as to be significantly less effective in isolation; the book as a whole could technically be described as a collection of linked stories; but that would be misleadingly simple. Set on a distant two-planet system colonized by settlers of French origin, the book combines aliens, anthropology, clones and other elements in a richly imaginative exploration of the nature of identity and individuality.
