The Archon Sequence

Series

Welcome to the world of the Archon Sequence. A world just like ours.

Or not —

It is a world some five or so years further down the road toward an uncertain future.

A world where an infinitesimal, all-devouring monster hangs suspended in an immaterial web at the bottom of the sea, where self-aware machines battle meta-conscious hive minds for the soul of humanity, where alien intelligences usher in transhuman transfiguration on a ray of starlight, where hidden dimensions lurk only millimeters away from everyday reality, where that reality itself might ultimately reduce to an unthinkably vast equation on the brink of being solved.

The world of the Archon Sequence awaits you. Come on in. If you dare …

AWARD-WINNING Author

Bill DeSmedt

 

Bill DeSmedt has spent his life living by his wits and his words. In his time, and as the spirit has moved him, he’s been: a Soviet Area expert and US/USSR exchange student, a computer programmer and system designer, a telecommunications consultant, an Artificial Intelligence practitioner, a son, a husband and lover, a father and grandfather, an omnivorous reader with a soft spot for science fiction and science fact, and now, Lord help us, a novelist. He’s tried to pack as much of that checkered history as he could into his “Archon Sequence” technothrillers Singularity, Dualism, and the forthcoming Triploidy.

Bill’s first book, Singularity, won Foreword Magazine‘s Book of the Year Award for Science Fiction and the Independent Publisher Group’s IPPY for Best Science Fiction. The podcast of Singularity was a finalist for the Parsec Awards and was named an SFFaudio Essential.

Singularity

A subterranean black hole is gradually devouring the planet from the inside out, but stopping it could mean destroying the future!

Dualism

When the six-year-old daughter of a billionaire technocrat is kidnapped, ueber-consultant Jonathan Knox and counterterrorism agent Marianna Bonaventure  team with an experimental artificial intelligence to rescue her, never suspecting the little girl is key to a plot that could destroy the NSA’s most advanced cryptanalysis capability — and kill every man, woman, and child in the United States.

Triploidy

For Jon and Marianna Knox, the birth of their daughter Persephone marks the happiest day of their lives. Until they learn that Persey is suffering from a rare but fatal condition called “triploidy.”

Her doctors are baffled, and with good reason. Because the source of the little girl’s genetic malfunction is not of this earth. It lies out beyond the orbit of Saturn.

And it’s coming for all of us.

The level of ingenuity is immense. The characters grabbed me. SINGULARITY is a wonderful, intricate story — wonderfully well told.

– Larry Niven, Hugo- and Nebula-winning author of RINGWORLD and THE RINGWORLD ENGINEERS
