Bill DeSmedt
What if the cataclysmic Tunguska explosion of 1908 was caused, not by a meteor or a comet, but by a microscopic black hole? What if that fantastic object - smaller than an atom, older than the stars, heavier than a mountain - is still down there, orbiting deep inside the earth, slowly consuming the planet? What if only a rookie government agent and an uncannily-insightful consultant stand between a renegade Russian billionaire and his plans to use the black hole to change history - or end it? What if it's all true? For an alternative view of the Tunguska event and to explore the science behind Singularity, visit the Vurdalak Conjecture website. Accolades * Winner of the Gold Medal for Science Fiction in Foreword Magazine's Book of the Year Awards * Winner of the Independent Publishers Association's Ippy prize for Best Fantasy/Science Fiction novel of 2004 "Singularity is a swift, gripping novel with a goose-pimple mix of scary science and near-future action. An excellent debut from Bill DeSmedt - and I'll be looking forward to his next one!"- Greg Bear, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author "DeSmedt veers an action-packed thriller into perilous realms of black hole physics. The combination of adrenaline and intellect sizzles." - David Brin, Hugo and Nebula award-winning author
