The Dark Side of the Universe

2000px-dmpie_2013-svgTwo weeks from now, I will be appearing on Stanford University’s Philosophy Talk, a nationally-syndicated radio show that airs on 100+ stations around the country.  They’re doing a show on dark matter, the mysterious stuff that makes up most of the matter in the universe.  It’s a remarkable fact that, despite everything we’ve learned about the world around us, we still don’t know what most of it is made of.

The headliner for the episode will be an astronomy professor from Yale, who surely knows a lot more about dark matter than I do!  I was brought in as a science fiction writer with a passing familiarity with physics, to do a little fun speculation about what dark matter might be and how it might affect our lives in the future.

The show airs at 10:00 PST in San Francisco on Sunday, October 9.  Other stations around the country may air it at different times.



David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.
