Can You Name This Story? (Part 16)

Another reader writes in with a story description looking for a title.

Do any of our readers out there know the title of this story? Warm up your memories…this is a tough one with few details:

I’m nearly 60 years old, so the SF I’m talking about is pretty old. In any case, here goes: Many, many years ago, I read a book where a traveler to another planet wrote “2 + 2 = 4″ in the sand, and the sane shifted until the inscription read “2 + 2 ~ 4.” Any idea of the book I’m looking for?

  1. Whups! Not an e-book (sigh) … just pointers to sellers … well, one e-book version (Kindle) … geez, i’m searching as I edit this … what’d we DO before Google? Actually, I remember (64+ y/o) … we wrote these off to “I’m SURE I know that … but damn, it’s gone.”
