NEW NEAL STEPHENSON NOVEL
New Neal Stephenson novel to be published September 2008. I haven't even read the description. Like it matters. He'd have to publish about 5 books of blank pages before I became concerned.
Today's mood: Saturnalian
I suck. Looks like information about this was out a month ago and I just find out today. Amazon.com info:
Hardcover: 928 pages
Publisher: William Morrow (September 9, 2008)
Product Dimensions: 9 x 6 x 2 inches
Earlier mention from last September:
He's writing a science fiction novel unrelated to Cryptonomicon and the Baroque Cycle. It's set on another planet and has aliens and so on. It's really about Platonic mathematics, but he needed the aliens and space opera-ish elements to spice it up a little bit, just like the pirates kept people engaged in the Baroque books. He's nearly finished writing it, and if he doesn't finish by the end of the calendar year he'll have to give some money back. If everything proceeds according to schedule, it should be available in stores in about a year.
