Mad Art Gallery, 2727 S. 12th St.
Left Bank Books and Archon present an SF STL event with bestselling author Neal Stephenson, who will sign and discuss his new novel, Fall; or Dodge in Hell!
One autumn day, while multibillionaire Richard “Dodge” Forthrast undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on, an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife—the Bitworld—is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls. But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem. Paradise Lost by way of Phillip K. Dick, Fall, or Dodge in Hell is an exhilarating speculative literary saga for the modern age.
“Sometimes when you’re reading Neal Stephenson, he doesn’t just seem like one of the best novelists writing in English right now; he seems like the only one.”
