|A completely paralyzed mathematician receives congratulations from colleagues and other hospital visitors on the culmination of his research in a large scale physics experiment that is about to be conducted..but is incapable of telling them about his latest grave realization regarding its consequences.
It is a bit strange for me to refer to this story as "wonderful", since the tale it tells is horrific, but that is the word I would like to use. Perhaps I can say that it is wonderfully horrible, a masterfully created nightmare.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
