The Sore Thumb

It's June in San Francisco 2058 and Spock feels lonely and miserable as usual, but he's been invited to share a meal with a real oracle. Maybe this has the potential to change things?

The Sore Thumb is a 30k word short story and it's book number twelve in the Nerdology series, but it has been written in a way that makes it possible to enjoy for newcomers too. Even if the book contains many references to earlier books it's relatively self contained.

Here are three hard core questions for people who have already read the book:


What does Mikko's text reply mean?


What does the Saturn-like symbol on the top of the cover mean?


What's with the numbers on the clocks?

Bonus question:

Exactly how big is a gazillion according to Jenkins?
