"Numbers rule our lives: clocks, calendars and deadlines; salaries and benefits; tax codes and pin numbers: mortgages, bills and credit limits...in this unique collection of 21 stories, some of the world's finest fictioneers examine the effect of numbers on humankind's past, present and future. From the rewriting of history through the thrill of the roulette wheel to the codes controlling starships, each of these tales engages with numbers in innovative, entertaining and meaningful ways."
