Over the 2005-2006 academic year I re-wrote Edwin Abbott's classic Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions (circa 1884).  The new version is titled: The Story of Flatland: An Adventure in Many Dimensions (copyright 2006, Suzanne Fox Buchele). I presented my version and its use as a supplementary text in high school geometry classes at CAMT in San Antonio, Texas, July 2010.
