A physicist encounters an apparently crazy man who tries to convince him that some beings experience time backwards. His intriguing explanation of this phenomenon depends on theoretical physics, and ultimately upon mathematics, since it attributes the "arrow of time" to boundary conditions. Author/physicist Ken Wharton's "novella" (it seemed more like a short story to me) is available only electronically from Eggplant Productions.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in nonfictional math books let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
