Actually, the section Number Five is looking in seems to be the "science
fiction authors" section; that is, any authors who have written science
fiction. The library seems to organize its books the way I do rather than
according to the DDS.

Apparently, the original or one of his clones had written SF or had written
something (like his life story) that was believed to be SF.
