"Within the computer field, there are classical books I still find impressive, like Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. That was really 10 years ahead of its time. It kind of anticipated what's going to happen, and I find that really interesting."

About the Book

Dark satirical fantasy of a nightmarish future in which all government functions have been privatized, and corporate monopolies wage private wars with armies of mercenaries.
