SoylentNews Book Club: Discuss The Three-Body Problem, Start Reading Snow Crash

Accepted submission by takyon at 2018-12-05 19:44:03

December: Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson.

The next poll will pick two books. I'd like to do it that way to keep a strong second place contender from being overlooked, and so I don't have to update the poll so often.

Discuss The Three-Body Problem [] by Liu Cixin in the comments below.

Snow Crash [] was written by Neal Stephenson [] in 1992. The novel features a bit of a Calexit scenario, and is known for popularizing the term "avatar" (paving the way for James Cameron's true magnum opus). These days, Neal moonlights as Magic Leap's [] "Chief Futurist". Seems appropriate.
