Hardbound. Neal Stephenson enjoys cult status among science fiction fans and techie types thanks to Snow Crash, which so completely redefined conventional notions of the high-tech future that it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. But if his cyberpunk classic was big, Cryptonomicon is huge... gargantuan... massive, not just in size but in scope and appeal.
Signed by the author of 'A Series of Unfortunately Events', Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket), 278pp, 2006 First Edition. A dazzling page-turner, this novel shows an internationally acclaimed storyteller at the height of his astonishing powers.
