War is spreading across the solar system over the prize that Brandt Wills just found. Could the key to ending this conflict be on blood-soaked Mars?
In a stolen alien ship together with the only other victim of Singularity he’s managed to rescue, Brandt and Psyche journey to war-torn Mars, beckoned there by an ancient alien presence and lured by tales of a massive recently uncovered structure that could be the source of Singularity’s power. Every major navy in the solar system is heading there after them, so things are about get ugly, fast.
The spectacular conclusion to David Hallquist’s epic Singularity War Trilogy is available now from Theogony Books.

In the official review of Sci Phi Journal Issue 2 over at Castalia House, the reviewer had this to say about my contribution:
There were two standouts in the fiction category: “The Quantum Process” by David Hallquist, a frightening snapshot of a mind duplication procedure gone wrong, and “Beyond the Mist” by Ben Zwycky, a new serial with a mind-bending beginning that hopefully will keep getting better.
I have to agree with the reviewer about “The Quantum Process”, it was the most powerful and best-written fiction contribution in the issue in my opinion. For my work to be placed alongside is praise indeed. I also hope that the continuation of the serial, appearing in Sci Phi Journal Issue 3 in January, will live up to people’s expectations.
