(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).

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.
