Contributed by Marco Abate

A (possibly successful, if I may say so myself) attempt of telling a story involving some real mathematics (chaotic dynamical systems) and believable mathematicians, and touching on larger issues like responsability, friendship, the ownership of mathematical results, bad financial deals and hockey games.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the 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
