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

Customer Reviews

Excellent Book

Singularity to this date has been a excellent story and well produced podcast. The voices he uses are quite good, and I am enjoying the plot. Plus there is a quantum mechanical fireside chat and who doesn't love those. Its well worth the subscription. I'm hooked.

You'll be up late listening

A fantastic blend of science fiction, science fact (very well explained in laymen's terms) and intrigue. Strong characters and an engaging plot. Plenty of cliff hangers and surprises to keep you listening late into the night!

just get through the beginning

overall i liked the book though the reader's voice is too soft and monotone at first and it makes it hard to get into especially at the beginning when the story is kind of slow
