a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
It is a tale about the quest of the inhabitants of Globión to find the true shape of their home planet. It also explains in a crystal-clear way some very abstract notions of topology of surfaces, and gives an interesting view of the impact of scientific discoveries among the people (perhaps too optimistic).
This Mexican book was published in Spanish by Fondo de Cultura Económica in 1999 and so far as I know has not been translated into any other languages.
