SINGULARITY TOPS BEST OF 2004 LISTS
DEBUT AUTHOR PUBLISHED BY SMALL PRESS HITS IT BIG.
Bill DeSmedt’s Bestselling “Stylish Technothriller,”*
Named one of the Best Books of The Year
Best Thriller or Best Science Fiction Novel? It’s both! ReadersRead.com has just named Bill DeSmedt’s bestselling Singularity (hardcover, Per Aspera Press, November 2004) to their Best Mystery/Thriller and their Best Science-Fiction/Fantasy lists for 2004. This comes hard on the heels of Barnes & Noble ranking it number five on their list of Best Science Fiction books for 2004. How does a newcomer published by a small press garner this kind of recognition? DeSmedt’s Singularity “juggles Clancy, Crichton, and The Da Vinci Code,” says New York Times bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson. It’s “an innovative concept for an end-of-the-world thriller, with convincing research and locomotive pacing.” Multiple Hugo and Nebula award-winning author Greg Bear seconds that: Singularity “is a swift, gripping novel with a goose-pimple mix of scary science and near-future action.”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Bill DeSmedt has been: a Soviet Area expert and Soviet exchange student, a computer programmer and system designer, a consultant to startups and the Fortune 500, an Artificial Intelligence researcher, an omnivorous reader with a soft spot for science fiction and science non-fiction, and, last but not least, a novelist. He’s tried to pack as much of that checkered history as he could into Singularity. Bill lives with his wife in Milford, Pennsylvania, where he’s currently hard at work on a sequel to Singularity to be called Dualism.
“A slam-bang first novel where the science is as important as the fiction.
James Bond would have loved to star in a story such as this.”
—The Plain Dealer
“Exotic hardware, lifestyles of the rich and notorious, double- and triple-crosses…
all make a respectable if not outstanding first effort.”
“A stylish technothriller.”
—San Diego Union Tribune*
