“Synthetic Philosophy of Contemporary Mathematics by Fernando Zalamea, translated by Zachary Luke Fraser (fall 2012, Sequence): Math philosophy, yes, but written for “the inquisitive nonspecialist” according to its publisher. Fellow McNally Jacksonite Sandeep Bhuller seconds the recommendation, calling the book “a bit of a beautiful mindfuck.”—Sarah McNally (with help from the staff) discusses new releases we can’t wait to read this fall season in Capital New York's Fall Preview 2012: New York’s indie booksellers recommend the best new reads.
“This did start as Twilight fan fiction, inspired by Stephenie Meyer’s wonderful series of books. Originally it was written as fan fiction, then Erika decided to take it down after there were some comments about the racy nature of the material.
