Prophesy, nightmare, or inescapable reality?

Long before The Hunger Games... Before even Philip K. Dick or H.P. Lovecraft... This 1919 pulp classic explored a nightmarish alternative reality where America's ruling class forces the poor to compete in deadly games.

Win, and you'll earn a lifetime of fame and luxury. But the games are rigged, and a public execution awaits all who dare to try.

When a seventeen-year-old girl from our own world follows her adventurous brother and his disgraced lawyer friend across the astral plane and into this horrific new reality, their only hope for survival is to win the unwinnable contest.

"A fast-paced, imaginative yarn" (Kirkus Reviews) by the woman who "arguably invented dark fantasy" (Publishers Weekly), The Heads of Cerberus helped define and popularize dystopian fiction as a genre and is cited as the first novel to make use of parallel worlds for science-fiction storytelling.
