With the help of playwright/director Isabella Gregor, Djerassi updated his play Calculus (Newton's Whores). The plot still revolves around the question of priority on the invention of calculus, and especially whether Newton used unfair influences to get a ruling in his favor against Leibniz. The main alteration from the 2004 original is the addition of a love interest for the two playwrights in the play. The play was performed in Vienna in 2009 and a review is available in the online journal bridges.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in nonfictional math books let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
