Five Fates

Afterlife of Bailey

Keith Laumer
Poul Anderson
Harlan Ellison
Frank Herbert
Gordon R. Dickson

One of the most bizarre and original fictional concepts ever attempted, this book is a remarkable tour de force for a quintet of today's top writers of speculative fiction. From a common story- hook--Bailey's death at the Euthanasia Center--each author was commissioned to extrapolate his own individual vision of Bailey's fate. No two even remotely resemble one another, and with consummate individuality each of the stories validates beyond doubt the incredible fertility of both the science fiction genre and its singular practitioners.
