A Wildly Inventive & Entertaining Science Fiction Thriller, a Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Neal Stephenson is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon. He will discuss and sign Fall; Or Dodge in Hell ($35.00 William Morrow),a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds.
