Snow Crash is a seminal novel that coined the term metaverse, which sort of seems like a hot topic these days?
Written back in 1992 by visionary author Neal Stephenson, Snow Crash follows Hiro Protagonist, who delivers pizza in reality, but in the Metaverse he's a warrior prince.
Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that's striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse.
