Fans of Monty Python will recall the joke so funny that anyone who reads it dies laughing. Frazier brings us the mathematical analogue: a number so big that it kills anyone who tries to think about it. This is the only mathematical story in the funny collection called "Dating your Mom".
(To the person who just voted to give this story a 50,000 in "literary quality": I didn't die laughing...but that was pretty funny. Thanks. I'm afraid I didn't count your vote of 5 for "mathematical content" either. I mean, it is quite obvious that this story has a lot less math in it than something like A Certain Ambiguity. Use realistic values next time and I'll count it.)

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com 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!
