Ultima Dea [The Last Goddess] (1994)
Gianni Riotta

Contributed by Michele Benzi

Unfortunately this book does not appear to have been translated from the original Italian. One of the central characters in the book, Alfred Diognetus (described as a "saint mathematician") is the editor of the [Journal of Formal Logic] and a professor at the U. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, if my memory [serves] me. The book could be described as a thriller/mistery, but a very unusual one.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
