Neal Stephenson Book and Novel

Neal Stephenson - Author


Neal Stephenson is the author of eight novels, including the cult successes Snowcrash and Cryptonomicon. He has been shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award six times, winning with Quicksilver. Four of his last five novels have been number one New York Times bestsellers. He lives in Seattle.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on CRYPTONOMICON...
From the author of the major cyberpunk opus SNOW CRASH, a massive tales of conspiracies that span the ages and the globe as wheels within wheels of clandestine espionage and secret history unfurl. Wide screen baroque at its best and what Pynchon would write if he were a science fiction author.

If you like Neal Stephenson you might also like to read books by Andrew Miller, Nick Harkaway and Iain Pears.
