a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|This short story is a tale of mysterious synchronicity revolving around: the Fibonacci sequence, spirals, horrific deaths and disappearances of school children, spacetime anomalies, and an empty school locker. In addition to the role that the Fibonacci numbers play in the plot, there is a bit about math classes and the gender stereotypes surrounding mathematical ability.
Thanks to Allan Goldberg for bringing this story to my attention. It was published in the Aphelion Webzine and is available for free at their website.

Exciting News: The total number of works of mathematical fiction listed in this database recently reached a milestone. The 1,500th entry is The Man of Forty Crowns by Voltaire. Thanks to Vijay Fafat for writing the summary of that work (and so many others). I am also grateful to everyone who has contributed to this website. Heck, I'm grateful to everyone who visited the site. Thank you!
