Note: Technically a collection of three novellas: "The Fifth Head of Cerberus," "'A Story' by John V. Marsch," and "V. R. T." Thematically a novel. The Fifth Head of Cerberus was pre-published a couple of months before the novel, and has been reprinted multiple times as a separate work. The second part was extracted and published as 'A Story' by John V. Marsch in 1994. The third part was extracted and translated into German as V. R. T.. Otherwise it has never appeared separately in English from the novel. Do not create content records for the separate novellas when adding a publication record to this title.
