The Mystery of the Cosmic Swan
In the not-too-distant future, the Earth is ravaged by destructive earthquakes. At the epicenter is the holy site, Mt. Kailas, in Tibet. Meanwhile, a brilliant blue comet is on a collision course with the planet. Is it a sign of the end of the world? Mark Joff, a USGS geologist, flies to the Himalayas to search for clues – and answers. As he is setting up his instruments, he meets Kusoom, a mysterious priestess. Mark follows Kusoom to a cavern, where she is revealed to be the leader of a religious cult. Here, she tells Mark that a great being, the Cosmic Swan, will soon rise up and take her devotees into the heavens.
Meet the Author
Bill Copeland worked at the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center. There, he saw some of the early images of the marbled Earth. He wondered about the images: a big bird egg, an object waiting to hatch, a creature waiting to take flight. What were they? These images and questions would spark a lifetime of wonder and ultimately form the basis of Cosmic Swan.
Bill joined the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) because he wanted to keep up with the latest scientific knowledge. He started writing because he dreamed of sharing his perspective on cosmology. His craft is also a way for him to convey his hopes for an infinite future for humanity. Through his research and love for science, Bill writes alternative science fiction. Cosmic Swan and Line of Absurdity are his latest works.
