Title: On The Plurality Of Worlds by, David Lewis

A pdf copy can be obtained online to download and read.
On the Plurality of Worlds (1986)[1] is a book by the philosopher David Lewis that defends the thesis of modal realism.[2] "The thesis states that the world we are part of is but one of a plurality of worlds," as he writes in the preface, "and that we who inhabit this world are only a few out of all the inhabitants of all the worlds." It is not to be confused with Cosmic pluralism. - Wikipedia
