I was reminded the other day (thank you, Anthony R. Rhodes!) that LeVar Burton has an episode where he reads “The Simplest Equation” by Nicky Drayden.*
Since that story was first published in issue #120 (Spring 2014), that’s almost like LeVar Burton is actually reading Space and Time magazine itself. That’s how I’m thinking of it anyways.
I tend to avoid math whenever possible, but Drayden’s story about appreciating differences in an advanced mathematics class is far from dry equations. Listening to LeVar Burton read it makes it even better. The original story was illustrated by Douglas Draper, Jr.
If you are lucky enough to have a copy of issue #120 you can read along. If not, I actually have around 25 original issues on hand. Send me an email (email@example.com) if you’re interested in owning this back issue.
