One of my favourite authors (and one who I have sung many a praise of on this blog) Neal Stephenson has been talking to Slashdot (thanks to Cory Doctorow at the excellent Boing Boing for the link). Neal’s site also has a link to a page on his latest work, the magnificent masterpiece that is the Baroque Cycle (how magnificent? well I was prepared to read three thousand pages of prose over three volumes in this last year of it, it’s worth the effort).
