I am making a list of fiction and science-fiction books
dealing with
a) Genetics
b) Mathematics

I would love to hear suggestions from you.  If possible, include
author, year, title, publisher, city.  Also include a short description.

Send suggestions to: cliff at watson.ibm.com

Example (for genetics and fiction):

Engel, A. (1988) Variant. Donald Fine: NY.
(An excellent fictional account of gene manipulation with startling
consequences for several young Russian boys.)

Example (for math and fiction):
Faidman, C. (1958) Fantasia Mathematica.  Simon and Schuster:  New York
(A book of stories and diversions all drawn from the universe of
mathematics).
