Vampire World (Trilogy) (1993)
Brian Lumley
(click on names to see more mathematical fiction by the same author)

In these sequels to Necroscope, the twin sons of Harry Keogh living in the remains of a black hole continue to fight vampires. One of the sons has visions of a "vortex of numbers". He seeks the assistance of a spirit to help him deal with these visions and ends up communicating with a sort of ghostly mathematician who talks to him about (among other things) the difference between Roman numerals and the decimal system (though I get the feeling that the author may think that place value notation only works in base 10).

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the 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
