About the novel ARTIFACT
In the future, an operational mining detachment will discover an alien device beneath the surface of Mars. When scientists gather to examine the find, Lance Kattar, one of the most respected particle physicists in his field, decides not to pass an opportunity to take part in what many of his contemporaries believe to be the most important discovery in history – a device containing nanotech far beyond human capabilities, left behind by an ancient alien civilization, long since extinct. The moment Lance interacts with this device, however, he triggers a series of cataclysmic events that threaten the very fabric of existence. Aided by an anthropologist from SETI, an orphaned young girl, and a high-school biology teacher, Lance embarks on an odyssey of revelation and self-discovery, as he finds himself racing to unravel the mystery of the ancient artifact from Mars, before it collapses into a singularity of world-ending possibilities.
