My book, Professor Conundrum Mysteries!...combines math education (non-fiction) and historical fiction.
The book consists of five stories that take place during important events in 20th century U.S. history: The Vietnam War, the Great Depression, WWII in Europe. It also contains a murder mystery that takes place on the Harvard campus, and a comparison of ancient china and modern Boston with respect to mathematics, and the treatment of the elderly. Five chapters (the first chapter of each story) can be read for FREE on the site!

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!
