Riffing on Strings

My story "Arachne" appears in this anthology, which includes fiction, poetry, essays, artwork, and a play inspired by cosmic string theory.

From the Scriblerus Press website:

"Riffing on Strings is a unique collection of creative writing that explores the cosmic and cultural resonances of string theory. Inside you’ll find thought-provoking essays, short stories, poems, and a play from over 40 acclaimed authors, including Nobel Laureate Sheldon Glashow, Michio Kaku, Peter Woit, Adam Roberts, Colette Inez, Brenda Hillman, Joseph Radke, and Bruce Holland Rogers, among others."

Professional Reviews

S. Abbas Raza, Editor of 3 Quarks Daily
“Sean Miller and Shveta Verma have put together an exhilaratingly eclectic anthology of creative and expository writing about one of the most exciting (even if controversial) intellectual fields of our time: string theory. Just Miller's erudite introduction by itself is worth the price of this sparkling collection.”

John H. Schwarz, Harold Brown Professor of Theoretical Physics, Caltech
“It is very surprising to me that string theory has entered the public consciousness to such a large degree, as documented by this book. This is probably due to the effectiveness of a few popularizers and the seeming craziness of its concepts. This book demonstrates that, in addition to practical applications, scientific research can also have cultural impacts.”

Frank Wilson, Former Book Review Editor, The Philadelphia Inquirer & Creator of Books, Inq.
“The jury is still out on whether string theory serves to explain the nature of reality, but the writers who have contributed to Riffing on Strings convincingly demonstrate that it serves very well as a springboard for the imagination. From Sean Miller's cogent introduction on, this is an engaging—and much-needed—dialogue between art and science.”
