|These two extremely short stories by Mauro, part of his thesis project which consisted entirely of original works of mathematical fiction, appeared in the December 2010 issue of Prime Number Magazine.
Actuarial is really just a collection of math jokes tied together with the barest of storylines.
The Paradox Paradox is a bit more interesting to me. It begins as a typical dialogue about fashion as a couple prepare to go out for the evening (`“Is that what you’re wearing?” she asked him.') and (d)evolves into a debate about the nature of truth, including the clever idea of a paradox which is parodoxical because it isn't.
