    This is an unusual offering from author Bill DeSmedt and physicist John Adler. This is not your usual kindle only novel. Allow me to explain. More than 10 years ago (2004), first-time author Bill DeSmedt published an outstanding sci-fi action thriller called SINGULARITY. In addition to excellent writing and plotting, the science was superb (see my, and other reviews for SINGULARITY). Recently (in late 2014) DeSmedt released the sequel to SINGULARITY called "DUALITY".

More than 10 years ago (2004), first-time author Bill DeSmedt published an outstanding sci-fi action thriller called SINGULARITY. In addition to excellent writing and plotting, the science was superb (see my, and other reviews for SINGULARITY). Recently (in late 2014) DeSmedt released the sequel to SINGULARITY called "DUALITY". It too, was excellent, and the science behind the fiction well founded in contemporary concepts in artificial intelligence and quantum computing (yes, that's a real thing). Here, in THE SINGULARITY FILES:AUDIOBOOK AND SCIENCE SEMINARS, a free kindle offering from authors DeSmedt and Adler, there are links to free downloads of SINGULARITY, read by the author, as well as printed excerpts from SINGULARITY and the sequel, DUALITY. None of this appealed to me, free or otherwise, since I had already paid for and read both SINGULARITY and DUALITY. But, the new "Bonus Feature" that made me download this item was the "Science Seminars". These are 17 or so chapters (or seminars: "Doctor Jack's Soapbox Seminars") that comprises about 50% of the text in this highly unusual kindle-only offering. THESE SEMINARS ARE THE ONLY THING THAT IS COVERED IN THIS REVIEW. For the novels themselves, see the Amazon review pages for the novels. (Both are superb). The"" "seminars" are written by a physicist, ProfessorJohn C. Adler, who provided the nitty gritty science behind the black hole and quantum mechanics that are central to SINGULARITY's plot. Adler focuses on black hole physics and a bit of cosmology to bolster his theory, written up by DeSmedt in the novel as fact, that the Tunguska Event of June 1908 was caused by a microscopic black hole consisting of a magnetic monopole impacting the earth, but not exiting, instead, orbiting inside the earth, around its center of gravity. This is an immensely cool idea. The "seminars" are a mini (or micro or nano) course in black hole physics for the layman with a little thermodynamics and quantum physics thrown in. One need not be a physicist to understand them, just curious with a bit of high school physics will do. I enjoyed them very much, although there was little new there that I had not already come across after reading several non-fiction books in quantum physics and relativity by folks like Brian Greene, Stephen Hawking, Paul Davies and others. But for others who are curious, but not curious enough to want to wade through a bunch of (completely enjoyable and well written) physics for laymen, Adler compresses a ton of stuff into relatively few pages. Bravo to him! It is a fun, interesting and easy read. One small quibble is that it is (deliberately I think) written in a folksy, homespun style, often agrammatical, that set my teeth on edge at times. But this complaint pales in terms of the great job of making some very heavy (heh, heh) concepts in physics completely comprehensible to the average joe. Finally, you ought to read both SINGULARITY and DUALITY. Or at least read the reviews. They are both outstanding. Highly Recommended (how not, since it's free?) JM Tepper
