Oh my, it certainly has been a while, hasn't it? After many quiet months, yours truly is back with new experience points, so prepare to level up your nerdery.
Recently, I finished reading Neal Stephenson's breakout novel, Snow Crash; a book that I'm sure many of you have enjoyed since it was released 20 years ago. Shortly before I finished Snow Crash, I began to consider which book would next fall before my insatiable literary hunger. I needn't linger on this decision long, as my beautiful girlfriend absolutely insisted the vacancy be filled with a book she had recently finished. The book, in continuing with the theme of debut novels, was Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, released under Crown Publishers during August of last year, and it tickled every geek bone in my body.
