Description:
Far from Earth two sister planets, Sainte Anne and Sainte Croix, circle each other. It is said that a race of shape shifting aliens once lived here, only to become extinct when human colonists arrived.

But one man believes they still exist, somewhere out in the wilderness.

In The Fifth Head Of Cerberus, Gene Wolfe brilliantly interweaves three tales : a scientist's son's gradual discovery of the bizarre secret of his heritage; a young man's mythic dream quest for his darker half; the mystifying chronicle of an anthropologist's seemingly-arbitrary imprisonment. Gradually, a mesmerising pattern emerges.
