    I'm a big Neal Stephenson fan. Read all his stuff. I loved Snow Crash.

    My favorite of his is not really Sci-Fi, but more historical fiction. It's a three volume set called The Baroque Cycle. Stephenson says it's actually 8 books, put together into three volumes (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World), but they are so inter-related it's really like one super long novel (total almost 3,000 pages). It takes a long time to read all 3 volumes but when it was over, I wished there was more. Awesome stuff, in my humble opinion.

    His other novels are great, too. Reamde is one of the best murder mysteries I've ever read. I recommend any of his books.

    I was happy with how that ended up bottoming out. Although it looks like they're on the path to fucking up this year's Hugo's too, or, trying to.

    The same ass-hats are trying to globally blacklist people they don't like: http://sjwlist.com
