Summary/Abstract: In the present paper I discuss the fantasy of human cloning and the clone as a myth of the „culture of the copy” society. I follow the idea that science fiction is, from an ethical point of view, the literary genre most concerned with shaping possible, often unsettling worlds and contexts, while also debating the main differences between the concept of “clone” and the unsettling category of the “double” in the realm of literature.
