 He’s looking for a fight. She’s looking for a hero.


Sergeant Dante Strak hasn’t always fought for the right side. Now that he’s part of Nova Force, he has a chance to make up for the mistakes of his past. After years of fighting, Dante believes he’s ready for anything the universe can throw at him…until a sexy, stubborn doctor crashes into his life and changes everything.


Dr. Tyra Li is on Bellex 3 to help combat the arrival of cobalt, a new designer drug that turned half the population into addicts almost overnight. When a brazen attack turns her mission of mercy into a fight for survival, a split-second decision leads to unexpected consequences, and a chance at a future she never imagined.

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon returns with a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller—Paradise Lost by way of Philip K. Dick—that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds.

In his youth, Richard “Dodge” Forthrast founded Corporation 9592, a gaming company that made him a multibillionaire. Now in his middle years, Dodge appreciates his comfortable, unencumbered life, managing his myriad business interests, and spending time with his beloved niece Zula and her young daughter, Sophia.

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.

Seven years ago, Alister and Samson watched everything they had ever loved or tried to protect burn. They’d been too young, too inexperienced to save their people, and so they’d ended up hiding, running away and leaving rather than face being killed with the rest. The shame of that haunts them still, but they don’t talk about it.
Instead, the twin brothers work as traders and explorers, finding rare things on far off planets and bringing them to people who are willing to pay high prices for them. When their business is slow, they sometimes accept bounties, hunting down criminals or rare animals and other creatures for those too lazy to hunt for themselves. When a bounty for more money than either of them has ever seen comes in, they can’t turn it down, even when it turns out that the collector they’d be hunting for wants a human woman for his collection. In order to find a human woman, they have to go to Earth, and when they get there, it’s nothing like they expected.

For one, the planet is under attack. For another, there are human women everywhere, and none of them are easy to catch. Samson is all for grabbing one and getting the hell out of there, but Alister seems to want to stay. The more they learn about Earth, the more they end up wanting to save it, but neither of them have fought in seven years, and they’re terrified of letting down the people of Earth the same way they failed their own people. They don’t even have an army, but it turns out that they might be able to borrow one. If they fulfill the bounty they came to Earth for, anyway…
