Description: This delightful anthology -- the first such collection since the publication of Clifton Fadiman's bestselling Fantasia Mathematica and The Mathematical Magpie -- explores the many ways in which creative writers have investigated mathematical themes, from the marvels of infinity and the peculiarities of spacetime to artificial intelligence, black holes, and quantum weirdness.
-- Features works by Italo Calvino, Lewis Carroll, Jorge Luis Borges, William Gibson, J. G. Ballard, James Dickey, Carl Sandburg, and Alan Lightman
-- Reintroduces lesser-known but seminal works such as science-fiction writer Connie Willis's cult classic "The Schwartzchild Radius"
