Excerpt
Excerpt: Prologue the mystery would never be solved. It would simply join others, like the tunguska event or the square crater on callisto, in the catalogue of unexplained occurrences. The initial worldwide excitement waned within a few months, as it became clear that no quick answers would be found. For a few years grieving relatives would, with some success, press officialdom to maintain the studies and inquiries. But there were no lawyers to keep the fires stoked. The courts ruled soon enough that the Grantville disaster was an act of god, for which insurance companies were not liable. Within ten years, the disaster had devolved into another domain of fanatics and enthusiasts, like the Kennedy assassination. Thereafter, of course, it enjoyed a near-eternal half-life. But few if any reputable scientists in the world held out any hope for a final explanation.
