Description

One of Time's 100 best English-language novels - A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous, you'll recognize it immediately

Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison--a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age.

In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo's CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but in the Metaverse he's a warrior prince. Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that's striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse.

Praise for Snow Crash

"[Snow Crash is] a cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon's Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole."--The San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the twenty-first century."--William Gibson

"Brilliantly realized . . . Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow."--The New York Times Book Review
