a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
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.

Exciting News: The 1,600th entry was recently added to this database of mathematical fiction! Also, for those of you interested in non-fictional math books
let me (shamelessly) plug the recent release of the second edition of my soliton theory textbook.
