The Ouroboros Wave
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
BLACK HOLE SUN
Ninety years from now, a satellite detects a nearby black hole
scientists dub Kali for the Hindu goddess of destruction. As human
society expands to Mars and beyond, the generations-long project to
harness the power of the black hole pits the retrograde humans of Earth
against the imminently rational men and women of the Artificial
Accretion Disk Development association. While conflicts simmer, a
mystery within Kali itself tests the limits of intelligence--both that
of human and machine.
“Without a doubt, The Ouroboros Wave not only stands as proof of the richness of Japan’s contemporary SF, it represents a new development in the history of Japanese hard SF.” —Toshihiko Onoue
