The Number of the Beast - Robert A. Heinlein5.76

An enthralling combination of classic space opera and heroic fantasy, The Number of the Beast is a breathtakingly original masterwork from one of the acknowledged greats of the genre.

A brilliant, but eccentric scientist has invented a space/time machine and using the three space and three time co-ordinates, he has discovere a possible 666 alternative universes... 666 being the magical number associated with the biblical Beast of Revelations.

Into this theme, Heinlein weaves his own galaxy of incredible ingredients - a Martian penal conoly where the British Empire wars with Imperial Russia, a universe with no letter 'J'. Multiperson Panthestic Solipsism, and the possibility that the mythical Beast may not be mythical at all...
