Кое-какие подробности о новом романе Нила Стивенсона

http://time-blog.com/nerd_world/2008/03/the_return_of_neal_stephenson.html
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Anathem-Neal-Stephenson/dp/1843549158
Since childhood, Raz has lived behind the walls of a 3,400-year-old monastery, a sanctuary for scientists, philosophers, and mathematicians—sealed off from the illiterate, irrational, unpredictable "saecular" world, an endless landscape of casinos and megastores, that is plagued by recurring cycles of booms and busts, world wars and climate change. Until the day that a higher power, driven by fear, decides that only these cloistered scholars have the abilities to avert an impending catastrophe. And, one by one, Raz and his cohorts are summoned forth without warning into the Unknown.

Напомню, что "Anathem" выйдет в сентябре.
