on the Rationally Speaking podcast.  A lot of interesting discussion on the role of philosophy in modern science, and then during the last few minutes, novelist/philosopher Dr. Goldstein talks about why she likes my novel (she also volunteered to provide a blurb for the book jacket).  I don’t know her.  I admire her work, though, and it’s probably true that without it, I would have dismissed the idea that I could sell a novel about mathematicians (which includes some real math) to a major publisher.  As I suspected all along, she doesn’t just possess outstanding literary skills; she also has excellent taste in novels!
