Moderately entertaining Baenish author despite the occasional grammatical solecism. But the real howlers are his attempts at mathematical language. For example:
A character described as “logarithmically exponentiating” hmmm… These are inverse operations, so do both and get back where you started, Like subtracting addition or something.
Or someone’s wealth described as rising “asymptotically” An asymptote is a limit, so that’s exactly what you don’t want. This is the right place for describing it as exponential, which is a function which rises without bound, and actually rises faster as it increases.
Quick quiz: which function is the non-trivial solution for d/dx = f(x)?
