B&N SFF on Ninefox Gambit

Ninefox Gambit by Yoon Ha Lee

As part of a column on “Numbers-Obsessed Sci-Fi & Fantasy Novels for Math Geeks,” Barnes & Noble SFF had this to say about Ninefox Gambit:

“This is one of those books that can’t be adequately described; better to silently hand it to someone and nod sagely, implying with your expression that this is the book that will change everything. Describing the universe Lee creates here isn’t easy, but here’s a go at it: it’s a consensus reality, shaped by the shared and very rigid belief of the inhabitants, belief is controlled by numbers, equations, and other mathematical processes. Reality itself is therefore governed by an accepted application of formula—but what happens if there’s a rebellion of thought? In our own world, cutting-edge math and physics are merely disturbing. In Lee’s, they upset the very fabric of reality.”
