Neal Stephenson Talks to io9 About Religion, Aliens, and Spoilers

Neal Stephenson Talks to io9 About Religion, Aliens, and Spoilers | Christianity & Politics | Scoop.it

We were lucky enough to get a chance to talk to Stephenson during his Apert, and asked about Anathem, as well as a few questions about Earth. (Warning: There are a few spoilers ahead.)
