EDITOR’S DESK
 Welcome to the rst issue of 
Imaginaire 
. My goal when I started thisproject was to create a place for quality mathematical ction. I knew there were writers out there who were using math in creative ways and thoughthere are always places for good writers to get their work out, there weren’tany venues that I could nd that highlighted this specic skill. We have ve great stories to kick off this new publication, as well as somereally wonderful images from photographer Eleanore Bennett. We have twostories that use Fermat’s Last Theorem in strikingly unique ways, the rst of  which gives us a glimpse inside a group of mathematicians who ponder whatit means that the theorem is no solved. We have a punchy tale of intriguecentered on a videogame that starts from a few lines of code and takes over auser’s computer. We have a great little humor piece that investigates just whatit takes to determine time of death. We have a great tale about a man trying to tap into a bit of the genius of Sir Isaac Newton. Finally, we have the otherstory using Fermat’s Last Theorem, in which a man escapes the reality of hislife by trying to wrap his mind around Wiles’ Proof. There are several different ways a journal can be successful, and many more ways that it can fail. One path to success is to start with a huge pileof money, print out a run of journals and get them into libraries and intothe hands of people who would be most likely to read and enjoy it (hint:professor types). While I wish
Imaginaire 
had the funding to do this, wesimply don’t. Instead, we’re trying another approach which has provensuccessful for other publications over the years. We are delivering the journalelectronically, in PDF format, both in a full size version and in a smaller version designed to be read on a standard ebook reader. You’ll notice thefull-sized version is laid out just like a printed journal. This is to give you ataste of what
Imaginaire 
 would look like in print form. If you’d like to help usrealize that vision, please consider donating on our web page. We’re asking for your help in passing these issues out. Feel free todistribute them to anyone you think might be interested. Subsequent issuesmay appear purely online or in other formats. We’re experimenting with adelivery system that works for us, and we’d appreciate your feedback as wetry different things out. My goal remains not only to highlight great ction,but also to create a community of people interested in mathematical ctionand a community of people with a common interest. Thank you for reading.
