“A wild, rollicking and endlessly-surprising tale of low lives and higher mathematics. I loved it!” – Lavie Tidhar, award-winning author of By Force Alone, Unholy Land and Central Station
Triggernometry is a brand-new novella from Nunslinger author Stark Holborn, mixing the grit of the west with a cast of mathematicians from across history, to create a truly unique and unforgettable western adventure.
“I hereby arrest the fugitive “Mad” Malago Browne for murder, arson, robbery and acts of pernicious arithmetic against the Capitol States. Also the fugitive Pierre “Polecat” de Fermat, for sundry of the same.”
In the Western States, it doesn’t pay to count your blessings.
Professor Malago Browne, once the most notorious mathematician in the west, has been trying to leave her outlaw past behind and lead a quiet life. But all of that changes when her former partner – the deadly and capricious Pierre de Fermat – shows up with a proposition of a lifetime.
One last job, one last ride: a heist big enough to escape the tyranny of the Capitol forever.
With a misfit crew of renegade topologists and rebel statisticians, Browne and Fermat prepare to take on the Capitol in the crime of the century. Little do they know the odds are stacked against them…
“A wonderful, fresh concept, brilliantly done” – Joanne Harris, author of The Testament of Loki, The Strawberry Thief, Chocolat & many more
“Totally unique and a veritable jolt to the sheer perversity of the imagination… It’s like Sergio Leone and William Gibson rewriting the Old West with a quantum calculator” – Maxim Jakubowski
