|One character in this tome-sized political eco-thriller is Ashir al-Hasan. Ash, as he is called by friends, is a a government data analyst. Although he also appears to be "on the spectrum",
he is not portrayed as being completely anti-social. For example, he has a crush on his sister's husband. However, his reactions to many things are not "normal" and I believe we are supposed to think of him as being overly-analytical. So, I consider him to be an example of the "unemotional mathematician stereotype" that often annoys me in fiction. Here, at least, it serves a greater purpose in that the reader can appreciate Ash's ability to remain calm and rational about the climate crisis when others around him appear to be unable to do so.

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.
