Until the end of the month, you can download my short story “End of Days” in most eBook formats here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/428812.
This is one of the ten short stories in Mindscapes: Ten Science Fiction and Speculative Fiction Short Stories (C) 2014 by Victor D. López.
This short story poses a novel theory as to the role of black holes in both the creation and destruction of an endless number of universes that coexist in an incomprehensibly complex multiverse. It is a cautionary tale about the arrogance of scientists who are the cosmic equivalent of amoebas attempting to discern the secrets of the universe by thoroughly examining within the limits of their perception the drop of pond scum they inhabit. It is also a cautionary tale about the ability of determined, well-funded terrorists to begin the process that will lead to the destruction of our corner of the multiverse by the creative use of materials at their disposal.
The end is very, very near and there is absolutely nothing we can do about it.
