From the Publisher.  Neal Stephenson has taken sci-fi to places it’s never been (Snow Crash, Anathem). He’s reinvented the historical novel (The Baroque Cycle), the international thriller (Reamde), and both at the same time (Cryptonomicon). Now he treats his legion of fans to Some Remarks, an enthralling collection of essays—Stephenson’s first nonfiction work since his long essay on technology, “In the Beginning…Was the Command Line,” more than a decade ago—as well as new and previously published short writings both fiction and non. Some Remarks is a magnificent showcase of a brilliantly inventive mind and talent, as he discourses on everything from Sir Isaac Newton to Star Wars.

Stephenson is a remarkable thinker, and I reference him and his books in several of the courses I teach, as well as discussing his ideas within my practice. Stephenson has changed how theoreticians and thinkers see cities, urban landscapes, and dwellings. I recommend his books to my students as a really good primer in determining where human thought is today, and where we are headed.
