Busby, in the classic mode of Robert A. Heinlein (who was a friend and fan of Busby's work), tells a rich, fast-paced and cleverly plotted tale of the day after tomorrow in The Singularity Project. Mitch Banning is a free-lance engineer in Seattle, who hires onto a secret high-tech project financed by industrialist George Detweiler that will change the world...if it works. And Mitch doesn't believe it will, since the people creating the hush-hush demonstration of the world's first matter transmitter include an elderly con-man, an addict-physicist, and a tough South American Indian with a knife. But Mitch doesn't care. He'll do his job, keep his nose clean, get paid, and have the satisfaction of seeing Detweiler, a bully since he and Mitch were school kids, delude himself with power fantasies. Then things get complicated. There are threats, someone is murdered. And perhaps the matter transmitter is real, a stolen invention, not a fake. It's hard to tell the businessmen from the con men, the scientists from the industrial spies...even for the killer in their midst. The Singularity Project is F M. Busby at his finest; complex, witty, sophisticated science fiction. It's vivid, plausible and intense and it's Busby's best novel yet.
