A blind math prodigy uses her ability to "see" what is going on in the Internet (watch out for the pun: Websight) to discover the emergence of a virtual life form. This is a solid and very readable hard SF novel, more about AI and technology than about math, but there is more than enough math to justify its inclusion on this website. In addition to the protagonist's discussions of how much she loves math class, we encounter a lot of discussion of cellular automata (including mention of Stephen Wolfram and Mathematica) as well as some information theory (especially Zipf's law).

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! Alex
