The first in the British Fantasy Award-nominated Triggernometry novella series from Nunslinger and Ten Low author Stark Holborn, mixing the grit of the west with a cast of mathematicians from across history: a unique and unforgettable western adventure.
In the Western States, it doesn’t pay to count your blessings...
Professor Malago Browne, once the most notorious mathematician in the west, has been trying to leave her outlaw past behind for a quiet life. But all of that changes when her former partner – the deadly and capricious Pierre de Fermat – shows up with a proposition of a lifetime. One last job, one last ride: a heist big enough to escape the tyranny of the Capitol forever.
“A wild, rollicking and endlessly-surprising tale of low lives and higher mathematics. I loved it!” – Lavie Tidhar, award-winning author of By Force Alone, Unholy Land and Central Station
“Totally unique… It’s like Sergio Leone and William Gibson rewriting the Old West with a quantum calculator” – Maxim Jakubowski
