Snow Crash

by Neal Stephenson

Condition: Near Fine /Near Fine


New York: Bantam Press. New York, Bantam Press, 1992. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. An important first edition for collectors of modern science fiction. Snow Crash is regarded as one of the seminal works of modern science fiction. An exceptional novel [Andrews & Rennison, 100 Must-Read SF Novels, p133]. Near fine, perhaps a touch faded to the spine, though hard to be sure. Some bumping to the spine tips, a little grubbiness to the top edge. A decent copy overall. Cover art by Jean-Francois Podevin [6606, Hyraxia Books]. . Near Fine. Hardback. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1992.

Snow Crash is Neal Stephenson's third novel, published in 1992. Like many of Stephenson's other novels it references history, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology, religion, computer science, politics, cryptography, and philosophy. Stephenson explained the title of the novel in his 1999 essay In the Beginning... was the Command Line as his term for a particular software failure mode on the early Apple Macintosh computer.

  "In one of the most perceivable dystopian futures that I can imagine, Hiro is everything.

Honestly, I'm not looking for the money. I am registering an amount because your own review of this book captures the fine points so well. Neal Stevenson's writing in Snow Crash is so visceral and complex, that you have no choice but to become immersed in the world he creates. It fires your brain for weeks after the read, if not longer. It takes time to wrap one's head around his world and language, and his execution is flawless.

This book is at pleat as important as Stranger in a Strange Land.

10/10 Worth the read"
