Snow Crash

The science fiction book Snow Crash was written by American author Neal Stephenson and released in 1992. It encompasses history, linguistics, anthropology, archaeology, theology, computer science, politics, cryptography, memetics, and philosophy, just like many of Stephenson’s works do. It famously coined the term Metaverse, as in the story people escape reality by exploring a virtual world as avatars.
