A novel about the limits of scientific knowledge set at the Institute for
Advanced Study at Princeton. Mathematicians Kurt Gödel and John von
Neumann are among the principle characters (along with Albert Einstein and
Robert Oppenheimer, of course). I have not read it yet, but it seems to
have gotten mixed reviews from the professional critics (which by itself
may not mean anything) who all agree that it succeeds as scientific
discourse but disagree as to the literary quality.
John Casti is a well known author of nonfiction books on popular mathematics, although his recent Mathematical Mountaintops had to be withdrawn from publication after charges of plagiarism. He has also written another historical novel that qualifies (just barely) as mathematical fiction: The Cambridge Quintet.

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!
