Originally in The New Haven Review, a literary fiction magazine, and indeed this story has no sfnal or fantastic elements. But it’s a clever piece of fiction, initially masquerading as a choose-your-own-adventure format, to look at issues around determinism, free will, and the mathematical conceit to which the title refers. Through a second-person narrative, you get to see the range of choices and consequences a guitarist has.
