"William E. Emba"|
The Stone family goes off on a working tour across the solar system.
As a condition for going, the father insists the twins keep up with

is commented on when their pet "flat cat" reproduces 8 at a time, and
faster than expected.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
