NEAL STEPHENSON presents SEVENEVES @ Public Works on May 20
The Booksmith is excited to welcome back NEAL STEPHENSON with his new novel, SEVENEVES, an interstellar romp more than ten years in the making.
SEVENEVES combines the dazzling genius and imaginative vision of New York Times bestselling author Neal Stephenson. After a catastrophic event on the earth, the nations around the globe band together to ensure the survival of humanity in outer space. Spanning five thousand years, the story follows a handful of pioneers as they multiply into a population of three billion, and they begin a counter- journey back to earth. SEVENEVES blends 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.
Neal Stephenson is the author of Reamde, Anathem, the three-volume historical epic The Baroque Cycle (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World) as well as Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
