|As mathematician Adam Godley lies seemingly unconscious and dying in bed, his family and professional rival wander through his home.
The title is a reference to the computational anomalies in quantum field theory which had to be resolved through renormalization. Godley worked in this area, as well as on the many-worlds interpretation of wave-function collapse.
Interestingly, the novel adopts the style of the ancient dramas, featuring the god Hermes as a narrator, and with a special guest appearance by Zeus doing his usual bit (appearing in human guise and having fun with the ladies).

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