At the dawn of the seventeenth century everyone believed that the sun revolved around the earth. Yet some men knew that the heavens did t move as they should. And some men began to suspect that this heresy was in fact the truth. As Europe convulsed in conflict between Catholic and Protestant, these men prepared to die for that truth. This is the story of Kepler and Galileo, two men whose struggle with themselves, with the forces of reaction and with the evidence that changed t simply themselves but our world. The Sky's Dark Labyrinth is the first of a trilogy of vels inspired by the dramatic struggles, personal and professional, and key historical events in man's quest to understand the Universe.
Journalist, author and broadcaster, Stuart Clark has devoted his career to presenting the dynamic world of astronomy to the general public. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and a former Vice Chair of the Association of British Science Writers.

He divides most of his time between writing books and writing for the European Space Agency in his capacity as senior editor for space science, alongside producing features for the BBC and many publications. He has written seventeen books to date, selling more than 250,000 copies worldwide, which have been translated into twelve languages so far. He regularly lectures throughout the UK and, increasingly, across the world. www.stuartclark.com
