Review

Praise for Mathematicians in Love & nbsp; "Rudy Rucker should be declared a National Treasure of American Science Fiction.& nbsp; Someone simultaneously channeling Kurt Godel and Lenny Bruce might start to approximate full-on Ruckerian warp-space, but without the sweet, human, splendidly goofy Rudy-ness at the core of the singularity."
--William Gibson, author of Pattern Recognition & nbsp; " Dr. Seuss meets Dr. Wolfram by way of Dr. Leary. This is vintage Rucker: whimsical and weird, with a chewy center of hard physics that's gnarly as hell." - Cory Doctorow, author of Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town
& nbsp;
" A mind-bending tale. In a riotously twisting plot, complete with hypertunnels, alien shellfish from a parallel universe, and an improbable resolution to the threesome ' s romantic dilemma, Rucker pulls out all the stops for one of his most entertaining yarns to date. " -- Booklist
