En el reino de Sol, los secretos de la materia han sido descifrados y la misma muerte es solo un recuerdo gracias a dos asombrosas tecnologías, la roca pozo y el colapsio. Bruno de Towaji, inventor de este último, sueña con construir un artefacto capaz de sondear los lugares más remotos del espacio tiempo. Marlon Sykes, su rival en el amor y en la ciencia, trabaja en un vasto proyecto: la construcción de un anillo de colapsio alrededor del sol. Pero en el momento en el que un despiadado saboteador ataca el anillo de colapsio, ambos científicos tienen que dejar a un lado su enemistad personal y unir sus prodigiosos intelectos para prevenir la destrucción del sistema solar… y de toda la vida que hay en él.

Wil McCarthy es novelista, escribe sobre ciencia para el canal SciFi y trabaja en la investigación aeroespacial. De sus obras se ha dicho que tienen ecos de Arthur C. Clarke. El colapsio es su novela más ambiciosa, sorprendente y original hasta la fecha.
