After listening to ‘the scribbler’ whine on about the predictions in his fictions which he uses as evidence of their ‘reality’ I went looking for earlier works which utilize the idea of many-worlds, multiverses, parallel universe etc.
Jorge Luis Borges’ 1941 story “The Garden of Forking Paths” used the concept of parallel universes before the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics had been developed. download it here
Fritz Leiber’s novel, The Big Time where there’s a war across time between two alternate futures each side manipulating history to create a timeline that modulates into their own world. download it here
