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.
