The Alchemical Marriage of Alistair Crompton

(1978)
(Crompton Divided)
A novel by

 
Crompton Divided was also published in the United Kingdom under the title The AlchemicalMarriage ofAlistair Crompton.

Alistair Crompton, skilled nosologist at Psychosmell, Inc., sniffs out something he's been missing his whole life: his other selves. His disturbed psyche was divided into three parts and the other two were implanted in other bodies on other planets. His obsession to reunite himself leads to disturbing discoveries about the underpinnings of the society he lives in, personal conflicts, a vastly destructive war, and a shocking ultimate revelation.

The master of SF madness operates at the top of his form.

From the very beginning of his career, Robert Sheckley was recognized by fans, reviewers, and fellow authors as a master storyteller and the wittiest satirist working in the science fiction field. Open Road is proud to republish his acclaimed body of work, with nearly thirty volumes of full-length fiction and short story collections. Rediscover, or discover for the first time, a master of science fiction who, according to the New York Times, was "a precursor to Douglas Adams."

"In case anyone has managed to miss this singular author's seminal influence on the world of imaginative literature, my best advice is to throw oneself in the way of Crompton Divided and give oneself up to wonderful madness." - Harlan Ellison
