Mathematical Goodbye (1999)
Hiroshi Mori

Mori is a popular author of mystery novels in Japan and a former professor of engineering at Nagoya University. Li-Chang Hung, who has read the books translated into Chinese, has suggested that I add some of them to my list of mathematical fiction. Unfortunately, I cannot say much about these books or their mathematical content since I have not read them. Just from the title, I have guessed that "Mathematical Goodbye" is an example of Mori's mathematical fiction. If anyone can provide additional information (or tell me which others of Mori's many works of fiction should also be listed here) I would be very grateful.

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
