The incredible suicide rate among Crosstime pilots could not be coincidence. I chose this one to review al, it’s the one I can find my copy of and remember what’s in it.

All the Myriad Ways Overview

His own world had continued to divide after his departure, in a constant stream of decisions being made both ways. A girl in a miniskirt passes, and she has nice legs. Gene, do you know how many Crosstime pilots myrkad killed themselves in the last year? I didn’t much care for the two parallel universe stories, especially since they were so close together in the collection. The gun was old but serviceable. The Crosstime Corporation already held a score of patents on inventions imported from alternate time tracks.

He’d have had to check Harmon’s business affairs, even without the Crosstime link. Shall we go up and see? He put the gun back on his desk, pointing away from him, and he thought of Ambrose Harmon, coming home from a late night.

The only sign of disorder was Harmon’s clothing—slacks, sweater, a silk turtleneck shirt, kneelength shoesocks, no underwear—piled on a chair in the bedroom.

A dozen miracles had originated in a single, technologically advanced timeline, one in which the catastrophic Cuban War had been no more than a wet firecracker. There were timelines branching and branching, a mega-universe of universes, millions more every minute. Lasers, oxygen-hydrogen rocket motors, computers, strange plastics—the list was still growing.

There’s a segment of nonfiction in the middle fhe drags horribly — Niven has poor command of density for nonfic. A police detective, pondering a rash of unexplained suicides and murder-suicides occurring since the discovery of travel to parallel universesbegins to realize that if all possible all that might be made actually are made in parallel universes, people will see their freedom of choice as meaningless. The vehicles had been wrecked—their hulls intersected.

The ones that are totally bombed, and Crosstime can’t even find out who did it.

Every choice made by every man, woman, and child on Earth was reversed in the universe next door. There was little to be learned from seeing him in his present condition. Niven puts a couple of spins on this. About Me Scott W. The victim-killers walked off bridges or stepped from their balconies or suddenly flung themselves in front of subway trains.

As many have said, it’s very technical in the middle and I can see not many being keen on that. He adapted his story Inconstant Moon for an episode of the myria series The Outer Limits in Fifteen are dead, and all but two died by suicide. Some of the dead worlds were hells of radioactive dust and intact but deadly artifacts.
