a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
Featuring an aging mirror-maker who is asked to create a mirror which acts like a moebius strip and shows a reflection of the past and the future. Frankly, I did not think it was done well at all and is quite unconvincing. But it hinges on "Moebius" so I guess it qualifies as Math fiction.
If nothing else, I admire the title! This story was published in the 2006 anthology Elemental: The Tsunami Relief Anthology: Stories of Science Fiction and Fantasy
Enjoyable, but should be expanded to include more plot points and an explanation of the premise and properties of the 4D moebius strip

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!
