New York Times Best Selling Author Neal Stephenson at COM
“[Neal] Stephenson has a once-in-a-generation gift: he makes complex ideas clear, and he makes them funny, heartbreaking and thrilling.” – TIME
Stephenson, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Anathem, is continually tripping the literary world with his brazen and brilliant fictional creations – whether he’s reimagining the past (The Baroque Cycle), inventing the future (Snow Crash*), or somehow doing both (Cryptonomicon). Snowcrash was named one of TIME magazine’s top 100 all-time best English-language novels.
With Reamde, this visionary author whose mind-stretching speculative fiction has been enthusiastically compared to the work of Pynchon, DeLillo, Vonnegut, and David Foster Wallace – not to mention William Gibson – once again blazes new ground. And once again, he delivers a high-intensity, high-stakes, action-packed thriller in which a tech entrepreneur gets caught in the very real crossfire of his own online war game.
This special event – one of only a handful of events around the country – will take place at College of Marin, Olney Hall (835 College Ave. in Kentfield) on Thursday, October 6th at 7pm. Tickets are $40 and include a copy of Reamde (William Morrow, $35.00). A booksigning will follow.
