Hi Reddit. Neal Stephenson here. I wrote a number of books including Snow Crash, The Diamond Age, Cryptonomicon, The Baroque Cycle, Anathem, and most recently REAMDE (pronounced reem-dee) which came out in trade paperback a couple of weeks ago. I'm also one of several co-authors of THE MONGOLIAD, an epic historical fantasy which we published electronically starting in 2010 and which has recently been brought out in paperback by 47North.

THE MONGOLIAD is set in Foreworld, which is a slightly tweaked alternate history of the planet that we live on, showcasing the historical martial arts traditions of [mostly] the west. We're hoping to make this the basis of additional fiction and graphic novels as well as filmed entertainment and video games. As much as I hate to type out this disagreeable buzzword, this is, in other words, a transmedia project. There. I said it.

As part of that, we've been quietly working for a few years on a sword fighting video game that we believe will be much more satisfactory than anything out there now. Its code name is CLANG and here is the Kickstarter for it. If you have ever played a video game with sword fighting and gotten the distinct impression that what you're doing bears no resemblance in any way to what actual sword fighting might be like, consider visiting the page and donating.

I will return at 8PM CST to answer questions

Thanks everyone, it looks like things are winding down and so I'm going to turn my attention to the 4th quarter of the basketball game!
