A #1 New York Times Bestseller, Anathem is perhaps the most brilliant literary invention to date from the incomparable Neal Stephenson, who rocked the world with Snow Crash, Cryptonomicon, and The Baroque Cycle. Now he imagines an alternate universe where scientists, philosophers, and mathematicians live in seclusion behind ancient monastery walls until they are called back into the world to deal with a crisis of astronomical proportions. Anathem won the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel and the reviews for have been dazzling: “Brilliant” (South Florida Sun-Sentinel), “Daring” (Boston Globe), “Immensely entertaining” (New York Times Book Review), “A tour de force” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), while Time magazine proclaims, “The great novel of ideas…has morphed into science fiction, and Neal Stephenson is its foremost practitioner.”

Zodiac, the brilliant second novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the The Baroque Cycle and Snow Crash, is now available from Grove Press. Meet Sangamon Taylor, a New Age Sam Spade who sports a wet suit instead of a trench coat and prefers Jolt from the can to Scotch on the rocks.

Before long Taylor’s house is bombed, his every move followed, he’s adopted by reservation Indians, moves onto the FBI’s most wanted list, makes up with his girlfriend, and plays a starring role in the near-assassination of a presidential candidate. Closing the case with the aid of his burnout roommate, his tofu-eating comrades, three major networks, and a range of unconventional weaponry, Sangamon Taylor pulls off the most startling caper in Boston Harbor since the Tea Party.

Il mondo in cui è cresciuto il giovane Erasmas non esiste più. Tutto è cambiato nel corso delle avventure vissute nel primo volume della saga di Anathem. Non più la serena vita di studio e riflessione all’interno del convento, ma un viaggio fuori dalle mura, nelle terre governate dal Potere Secolare, verso l’evento più sconvolgente della storia millenaria del pianeta Arbre: il contatto con una civiltà aliena. I Geometri – così chiamati perché sulla loro astronave è disegnato il più famoso dei teoremi – non sono fisicamente molto diversi dagli arbriani, hanno elaborato, grazie ai loro sapienti, analoghe teorie sul tempo, lo spazio e gli universi paralleli, e soprattutto sono divisi dagli stessi conflitti che attraversano Arbre. La posta in gioco è una trattativa che dice salvezza o distruzione. Stephenson ha scritto un romanzo che fa di­menticare al lettore ogni cosa, trascinandolo in un’apnea degna della grande letteratura d’avventura.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon comes an exciting and thought-provoking science fiction epic—a grand story of annihilation and survival spanning five thousand years. What would happen if the world were ending? A catastrophic event renders the earth a ticking time bomb. In a feverish race against the inevitable, nations around the globe band together to devise an ambitious plan to ensure the survival of humanity far beyond our atmosphere, in outer space. But the complexities and unpredictability of human nature coupled with unforeseen challenges and dangers threaten the intrepid pioneers, until only a handful of survivors remain . . . Five thousand years later, their progeny—seven distinct races now three billion strong—embark on yet another audacious journey into the unknown . . . to an alien world utterly transformed by cataclysm and time: Earth. A writer of dazzling genius and imaginative vision, Neal Stephenson combines science, philosophy, technology, psychology, and literature in a magnificent work of speculative fiction that offers a portrait of a future that is both extraordinary and eerily recognizable. As he did in Anathem, Cryptonomicon, the Baroque Cycle, and Reamde, Stephenson explores some of our biggest ideas and perplexing challenges in a breathtaking saga that is daring, engrossing, and altogether brilliant.

È l’anno 3689 e il pianeta Arbre vive un periodo di pace e serenità. Nel suo passato ci sono imperi, colpi di stato militari, gli Eventi Tragici e la Ricostituzione, il Primo, il Secondo e il Terzo Sacco, ma nei secoli è stato raggiunto un equilibrio. Gli scienziati, i matematici, i filosofi vivono chiusi nei loro “concenti”, e si dedicano alla pura speculazione teorica senza avere nessun contatto con la tecnologia, che invece segna l’esistenza del resto della popolazione: gli “extramuros”, sottoposti al Potere Secolare. Ma qualcosa minaccia l’ordine perfetto di Arbre: lo dimostra l’espulsione dal concento di Saunt Edhar, al canto struggente dell’Anathem, del sapiente Orolo, che osservando il cielo ha scoperto un oggetto luminoso in avvicinamento. Sarà il suo allievo prediletto, il diciottenne fraa Erasmas, ad avere una parte cruciale nel dramma che sta per svolgersi su Arbre. E toccherà a lui, alla compagna Ala e agli altri novizi esplorare il mondo di fuori: sino ai confini più estremi. Anathem.

With this extraordinary first volume in what promises to be an epoch-making masterpiece, Neal Stephenson hacks into the secret histories of nations and the private obsessions of men, decrypting with dazzling virtuosity the forces that shaped this century. As an added bonus, the e-book edition of this New York Times bestseller includes an excerpt from Stephenson's new novel, Seveneves. In 1942, Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse—mathematical genius and young Captain in the U.S. Navy—is assigned to detachment 2702. It is an outfit so secret that only a handful of people know it exists, and some of those people have names like Churchill and Roosevelt. The mission of Waterhouse and Detachment 2702—commanded by Marine Raider Bobby Shaftoe-is to keep the Nazis ignorant of the fact that Allied Intelligence has cracked the enemy's fabled Enigma code. It is a game, a cryptographic chess match between Waterhouse and his German counterpart, translated into action by the gung-ho Shaftoe and his forces. Fast-forward to the present, where Waterhouse's crypto-hacker grandson, Randy, is attempting to create a "data haven" in Southeast Asia—a place where encrypted data can be stored and exchanged free of repression and scrutiny. As governments and multinationals attack the endeavor, Randy joins forces with Shaftoe's tough-as-nails granddaughter, Amy, to secretly salvage a sunken Nazi submarine that holds the key to keeping the dream of a data haven afloat. But soon their scheme brings to light a massive conspiracy with its roots in Detachment 2702 linked to an unbreakable Nazi code called Arethusa. And it will represent the path to unimaginable riches and a future of personal and digital liberty...or to universal totalitarianism reborn. A breathtaking tour de force, and Neal Stephenson's most accomplished and affecting work to date, Cryptonomicon is profound and prophetic, hypnotic and hyper-driven, as it leaps forward and back between World War II and the World Wide Web, hinting all the while at a dark day-after-tomorrow. It is a work of great art, thought and creative daring; the product of a truly iconoclastic imagination working with white-hot intensity.
