Author Info
William Sleator
William Sleator graduated from Harvard with a degree in English, although his original major was music. Sleator's first book, THE ANGRY MOON(1970), is a retelling of a Tlingit legend. He is perhaps best known for his 1974 science fiction work, HOUSE OF STAIRS, and 1984's INTERSTELLAR PIG. Before turning to writing full-time, Sleator spent nine years as a rehearsal pianist for the Boston Ballet.
Praise
"Sleator's mastery of suspense will leave readers breathless."
From the Publisher
Annotation When 16-year-old David finds a machine that can duplicate himself, he thinks his problems are over--now he can be in two places at once! However, his problems really begin when his duplicate develops a mind of his own, and duplicates himself, creating a clone who is cruel and vicious. Losing control in this dangerous game, David must decide which one of them lives and which one dies--before one of them decides it for him.
Editors Note When David finds a mysterious machine that can copy living things, he thinks his problems are over. The possibilities are endless--and then they turn terrifying as his duplicate desires to see the real David dead.
