Oddest Book Title of the Year Is Hyperbolic, Crocheted

The British book-trade magazine The Bookseller has announced the winner of their annual Diagram Prize, for the oddest book title of the year -- it's Crocheting Adventures with Hyperbolic Planes by Dr Daina Taimina (A K Peters).

This is a real blow for those of us in the SF world who were wagering heavily on Ronald C. Arkin's Governing Lethal Behavior in Autonomous Robots, but the voters have spoken, and we can only shake our first in rage and shred our betting tickets morosely.

Ah, well -- there's always next year!
