The Heads of Cerberus has been hailed as one of the first, if not THE first science-fiction novel to deal with alternate-worlds. Although Francis Stevens (a.k.a. Gertrude Barrows Bennett) wrote several novels, The Heads of Cerberus is undoubtedly her most influential work of science-fiction.

In this alternate reality, people from 20th-century America stumble into a timeline in which America is controlled by a dictatorship. One of the first dystopian novels ever written, the story is also an early example of what became known in the 1950s as "social science-fiction."
