"William E. Emba"|
Mathematics is invoked several times to formalize `what goes
round, comes around' as if it were a law of nature. 100% hokey.
The only thing worse than the bad math is the bad science.
Of separate interest is the story's (pre-1948) reference to `bit
of information'. Leinster of course only meant `bit' as in
"small amount", but it reads entirely modernly.
Published in Astounding magazine in June 1945.

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
