Baker & Taylor
Friends Bela and Paul, two young mathematicians in love with the same woman, Bela's girlfriend Alma, embark on a reality-changing competition to see who gets the girl, unleashing a nightmarish and unexpected future in the process, in an inventive science fiction tale by the award-winning author of Frek and the Elixir. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
A riveting new science fiction novel from the writer who twice won the Philip K. Dick Award for best SF novel.
Bela and Paul, two wild young mathematicians, are friends and roommates, and in love with the same woman, who happens to be Alma, Bela's girlfriend. They fight it out by changing reality using cutting edge math, to change who gets the girl. The contemporary world they live in is not quite this one, but much like Berkeley, California, and the two graduate students are trying to finish their degrees and get jobs. It doesn't help that their unpredictable advisor Roland is a mad mathematical genius who has figured out a way to predict isolated and specific bits of the future that can cause a lot of trouble. . .and he's starting to see monsters in mirrors.
Bela and Paul start to mess around with reality, and when that happens, all heaven and hell break loose. Those monsters of Roland's were really there, but who are they?
This novel is a romantic comedy with a whole corkscrew of SF twists.

Bela and Paul, two wild and crazy young mathematicians, are friends and graduate school roommates, and in love with the same woman, Alma. They fight it out by altering reality, using cutting-edge math to change which one gets the girl. The contemporary world they live in is not quite like this one, but very much like Berkeley, California. The two guys are trying to finish their degrees and get jobs. And it doesn't help that their unpredictable adviser, Roland, is a mad mathematical genius who has figured out a way to predict isolated and specific bits of the future that can cause a lot of trouble. Such as election results. And he has started to see monsters in mirrors.
But a whole lot of reality gets changed in the process of these two guys messing with it, and soon all heaven and hell break loose. Those monsters are really there, and some of them are mathematicians from very different realities. Meanwhile, the creator of our reality is revisiting it to produce a better work. This novel is a romantic comedy with a whole corkscrew of SF twists.
