About the Author

Neal Stephenson is the bestselling author of the novels Reamde, Anathem, The System of the World, The Confusion, Quicksilver, Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, and Zodiac, and the groundbreaking nonfiction work In the Beginning . . . Was the Command Line. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

Nicole Galland is the author of I, Iago, as well as The Fool's Tale, Revenge of the Rose, and Crossed: A Tale of the Fourth Crusade. An award-winning screenwriter, she is married to actor Billy Meleady and, unlike all her handsome and talented co-writers, spends no time at all hitting people with sticks in Seattle.

Reviews

"[An] immense and immensely entertaining genre-hopping yarn. . . . A departure for both authors and a pleasing combination of much appeal to fans of speculative fiction."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Quantum physics, witchcraft, and multiple groups with conflicting agendas, playfully mixed with vernacular from several centuries and a dizzying number of acronyms, create a fascinating experiment in speculation and metafiction that never loses sight of the human foibles and affections of its cast."--Publishers Weekly
"[An] enticing speculative thriller . . . a complex and engaging what-if tale that blends technology and history."--Booklist (starred review)
"There's a lot going on here--stylistic flourishes, comedic pratfalls, romance and science--but it's handled deftly. Those familiar with Stephenson will recognize his humor and ideas, while Galland (author of Stepdog, Crossed, Revenge of the Rose and others) brings a fresh and irresistible voice to this ambitious novel."--Washington Post
"Glorious."--Cory Doctorow, Prometheus Award winning author of Homeland
"The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. reflects the familiarity of authors comfortable in their respective genres and who trust the change of style the other brings. The book is more than the sum of its authors' parts."--The Straits Times
"Stephenson and Galland, full of zest and brio, have expertly assembled...a delicious soufflΓ© of adventure, laughter, hubris, and mind-twisting diachronic paradoxes."--Locus
"[The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.] explores the boundary between magic and science with wit, intellectual intensity and panache."--Financial Times
"Whimscial and chaotic. . . .Crack the covers and time will seem to slip away."--Toronto Star
"The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O. is a high-stakes techno-farce with brains and heart."--San Francisco Chronicle
"An intoxicating and worthy read . . . the collaboration provides both Stephenson and Galland a freeing atmosphere where ideas are explored and abandoned, measured and scattered, inflated and sent sputtering into the sky - an exhilarating place for a reader."--Winnipeg Free Press
