Neal Stephenson


“Painstakingly-researched, deftly-plotted roller-coaster of gigabytes and gunplay, a pitch-perfect pastiche of Robert Ludlum or Tom Clancy-style techno-thrillers and a comment on contemporary digitality and the ubiquity of online interconnectivity.”

Val Nolan, Irish Examiner review of REAMDE

Neal Stephenson comes to Pittsburgh with the sequel to his epic techno-thriller Reamde. Fall; or, Dodge in Hell is a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller—Paradise Lost by way of Philip K. Dick—that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds.

Stephenson is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Cryptonomicon, and The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. (co-authored with Nicole Galland). Often referred to as speculative fiction, Stephenson’s work explores subjects such as technology, mathematics, cryptography, linguistics, philosophy, currency, and the history of science.

“An intriguing yarn—most geeky, and full of satisfying mayhem.”

Kirkus, starred review
