Return to the Golden Age of Science Fiction with Professor Mathison and his two, Artificial Intelligences: Romulus and Remus. Calling upon the remarkable computational power of this virtual mind, the hand-crafted human brain analogues are engaged to solve mathematical, logical, and sometimes mystical cases presented to them, all the while guided by the expert hand of Professor Mathison and his indefatigable assistant Aldo.

These four short stories visit upon notions of the nature of the mind, the role of technology, and are just plain good fun to boot. In the spirit of the pulp magazines from the forties and fifties, the humble collection is a return to the era of good, honest science fiction, where speculative ideas and page-turning plot were paramount. Set forty years ago in the dawn of the computer age, this volume is a technically minded, future of the past...


Subject to Testing
When an experimental device capable of expanding the human mind's capacity and learning ability goes missing from the campus, the inventor seeks the help of Mathison and his twins to locate the object - and to name the thief...

Perfect Protection 
When a disgruntled lecturer at the university locks down a valuable and unique computer, it is up to Romulus and Remus to deduce the probable password. This is no easy task, for unraveling the sociopathic psychology of the saboteur is the first order of business...

When the biological science department reports some missing laboratory animals, the head of campus security - out of all ideas - approaches the Professor and his team in order to identify the vandals. Naming them is only the first step, catching them in the act is another difficulty altogether...

A Question of Quarantine 
When a highly infectious and malicious computer virus is let out 'in the wild', the death of a colleague's computer sets the Professor and his assistants into action. It is up to the Professor's ingenuity to set a trap, all while under the eye of the duplicitous stranger Wendel. Can Mathison defend his machines against the virus, and can he fend off the threat of the shutdown of his lab and his researches?
