|As mathematician Adam Godley lies seemingly unconscious and dying in bed, his family and professional rival wander through his home.
The title is a reference to the computational anomalies in quantum field theory which had to be resolved through renormalization. Godley worked in this area, as well as on the many-worlds interpretation of wave-function collapse.
Interestingly, the novel adopts the style of the ancient dramas, featuring the god Hermes as a narrator, and with a special guest appearance by Zeus doing his usual bit (appearing in human guise and having fun with the ladies).

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
