The Man Who Folded Himself

The book that folded my brain


I loved this book because it made me think about time travel in an entirely different way. Gerrold took the premise way beyond my imagination and I always find that refreshing. (There are a couple of dubious scenes in there that made me cringe regarding Gerrold's perception of women) but I forgave it that because I immensely enjoyed the rest of the book. It reads like a long short story or novella and I read it in two sittings.

Make sure you read the 73 edition. I've heard there are some odd anachronisms in the 2003 edition. You can't have anachronisms in a time travel book can you?

I also looooove the orginal artwork. Check it out here:
