Wheeler, J Craig

(1943-    ) US astronomer, academic and author whose The Krone Experiment (1986) begins as a very Near Future Technothriller but soon expands its narrative grasp as the threat to Earth turns out to be a Black Hole that threatens to devour the planet. The nonfiction Cosmic Catastrophes: Exploding Stars, Black Holes, and Mapping the Universe (2007) is a concisely told but far-ranging exploration of the phenomena designated in the title (see Astronomy).
