a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|This Italian collection of mathematical stories includes some short stories that appear elsewhere in this database (often translated into Italian) and some non-fictional essays that would not be appropriate for this database. However, there are some works listed that I do not know and perhaps ought to be added to my list. If you can read Italian and have access to this book, please let me know!
Thanks to Letterio Gatto for mentioning this collection to me when I visited him in Torino in 2015.

Exciting News: The total number of works of mathematical fiction listed in this database recently reached a milestone. The 1,500th entry is The Man of Forty Crowns by Voltaire. Thanks to Vijay Fafat for writing the summary of that work (and so many others). I am also grateful to everyone who has contributed to this website. Heck, I'm grateful to everyone who visited the site. Thank you!
