Few writers are dearer to the hearts of gamers and the people who make games for them than Neal Stephenson. The author of Cryptonomicon, The Diamond Age, Snow Crash, Zodiac, and the three-volume Baroque Cycle (Quicksilver, The Confusion, and The System of the World), he has redefined genres from cyberpunk to the historical epic with a lacerating intellect and the soul of a jacked-in Romantic poet. Now, to celebrate the publication of his new novel REAMDE -- set against the backdrop of the games industry -- Stephenson comes to the Game Narrative Summit at GDC Online for a unique keynote conversation led by video game journalist Geoff Keighley.
