a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
Featuring an aging mirror-maker who is asked to create a mirror which acts like a moebius strip and shows a reflection of the past and the future. Frankly, I did not think it was done well at all and is quite unconvincing. But it hinges on "Moebius" so I guess it qualifies as Math fiction.
If nothing else, I admire the title! This story was published in the 2006 anthology Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology: Stories of Science Fiction and Fantasy
Enjoyable, but should be expanded to include more plot points and an explanation of the premise and properties of the 4D moebius strip
