These are not really in any kind of order, since I don't even recall
when I intended to write most of them. I only remember most of them
at all due to comments in introductions and afterwords of other stories.
- Prerequisites for Popularity (essay)
- Angle Addition Theorem
- "I'm Gumby, Dammit!" (or: Refuting the Pauli Exclusion
- This story was to be written for a friend, Paul Hoar. However I
only wrote the introduction and part of one page, apparently. This
was due to be my last story of summer 1982.
- Gatoria, F.V.
- I don't recall what this was to be about, or even what
F.V. stands for, but Gatoria refers to my Chemistry class, where the
teacher, Mr. Mauger, hated Izod and made anyone wearing one of their
shirts sit in an "aligator pit" he marked off at the front of the
Actually I remember a little more, now. I think "F.V." might
stand for "First Visit", and Gatoria is a land in which rages a battle
between the Mugli-uglies and the Average-normals.
- Je parle du lait
- This was supposed to be a story in French, and supposedly I wrote
some of it, but I can't find it.
- To be a companion piece for "Soldier!".
- Water, Water, Everywhere!
- Operation Crusader, the Test
- Subtitled: A narrative account of a "vacation" at Fort Meyer's
- Approaching Infinity (trilogy)
- Into the Void
- Out of the Void and Into the Calculus
- Approaching Infinity
- TAA's Travels
- The Passion of Nancy
- This was to be written for my third "little sister" at Epsilon
Theta, Nancy Choi. It was to be structured around the stations of the
cross, with her twelve boyfriends having the names of the apostles, and
the fourteen stories having clever titles like "Nancy Falls in Love a
Second Time", "Nancy Strips", and "Nancy is Laid in the Bed".
I've been thinking recently of reviving this in a distorted form
to be the fourth story of Cinq nouvelles topologiquement équivalent
à une sphère (11/1/95)
- Equivalence of San Francisco, Tokyo, and Paris
- To be a joint work with Daniel Sternbergh for the AIR (Annals of
Improbable Research) in which we prove using knot theory that these
three are actually the same city.
