"William E. Emba"|
A seriously bizarre story about how
Laverne, the Goddess of Luck, has gone missing, and superheroes Poker
Boy, Front Desk Lady, and Screamer go looking for her, only to discover
that the Bookkeeper has mathematically proven that Chance does not exist,
and now Reality is changing. It takes an emergency appeal to the Gods of
Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry to save the Universe.
One of two mathematical stories in Denise Little's anthology Intelligent Design. (See also Year of the Rat).

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!
