A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what it undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.
First published in 1969, Behold the Man broke through science fiction's genre boundaries to create a poignant reflection on faith, disillusion and self-sacrifice. This is the classic novel that established the career of perhaps contemporary science fictionâ€™s most cerebral and innovative author.
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: â€œBrilliantâ€ (South Florida Sun-Sentinel), â€œDaringâ€ (Boston Globe), â€œImmensely entertainingâ€ (New York Times Book Review), â€œA tour de forceâ€ (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), while Time magazine proclaims, â€œThe great novel of ideasâ€¦has morphed into science fiction, and Neal Stephenson is its foremost practitioner.â€
