The whole town thinks Willem has already committed two murders. Why shouldn’t they believe he’s committed more?
For the past year and a half, Willem has been an outcast in his hometown. Everyone believes he’s a killer. On top of the murder accusations, his “biofuel/fertilizer” business is failing. He’s well over knee-deep in inventory with no chance of a sale in sight. When Murven, his out-of-work best buddy, volunteers to help him with his daily collection, they discover Willem is stockpiling more than he bargained for as an "entre-manure."
Once the sheriff gets involved, Willem's past and Murven's general reputation slingshot them both to the top of the list of murder suspects. With a little help from an unexpected ally, they escape custody and fight to clear their names of murder. As the news spreads, every busybody and media hog in the county—family, friend or foe—wants a piece of Willem and Murven's fifteen minutes of infamy.

R.D. Smith is a life-long experience collector. In 2001, he made a semi-impulsive decision to move abroad. What was meant to be a one-year trip set off an unexpected chain of events that lasted for fourteen years across three different countries.
R.D. went from his hometown of Charlotte, NC to New Zealand, where he earned an MA in Theatre and Film Studies, to three cities in China—Shanghai, Wuhan and the tiny town of Ma’an—and then back to New Zealand to pursue his PhD. Experiencing two major earthquakes in Christchurch changed his mind about graduate school, and he found himself on a plane to Tokyo, Japan. In Tokyo, he met his wife, who is from Sao Paulo, Brazil. In 2015, R.D. and his wife moved back to his hometown of Charlotte, NC.
R.D. works in real estate, spends his free time with his wife and daughter, and writes as much as time permits. He hopes to release Dang: The Legend of Vernon Boone (Dang Book 2) in early 2018.
One beautiful autumn day, while he 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. Long ago, when a much younger Dodge drew up his will, he directed that his body be given to a cryonics company now owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd. Legally bound to follow the directive despite their misgivings, Dodge’s family has his brain scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud, until it can eventually be revived.
In the coming years, technology allows Dodge’s brain to be turned back on. It is 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 . . .
Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.
