Neal Stephenson

After The Big U, Stephenson published the eco-thriller Zodiac before rising to prominence in the early 1990s with the novel Snow Crash (1992), which fuses memetics, computer viruses, and other high-tech themes with Sumerian mythology, along with an analysis of the differences between ideologies such as libertarianism, laissez-faire capitalism, and communism. Averaging one novel every four years, he has written several subsequent novels:

The Diamond Age: or A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer (1995), which deals with a future with extensive nanotechnology and dynabooks. The SciFi Channel and George Clooney will be producing a miniseries adaptation of The Diamond Age, to be penned by Stephenson.
Cryptonomicon (1999), a novel concerned with concepts ranging from computing and Alan Turing's research into codebreaking and cryptography during the Second World War at Bletchley Park, to a modern attempt to set up a data haven. It has subsequently been reissued in three separate volumes in some countries, including in French and Spanish translations.
The Baroque Cycle is a series of historical novels and is in some respects a prequel to Cryptonomicon. Consisting of eight books, it was originally published in three volumes:
Quicksilver (2003) (containing the books Quicksilver, King of the Vagabonds, and Odalisque);
The Confusion (2004) (containing the books Bonanza and Juncto);
The System of the World (2004) (containing the books Solomon's Gold, Currency, and System of the World).
The Baroque Cycle has subsequently been republished as eight separate books (both in English and in Spanish translation).
