La novela de culto de los hackers. En 1942, Lawrence Pritchard Waterhouse, genio matemático estadounidense, colaboró con otros especialistas en descifrar los códigos secretos de las potencias del Eje. Sesenta años más tarde, su nieto Randy, un brillante criptohacker, proyecta crear un paraíso de datos y el mayor exponente de la libertad informática: La Cripta. Si las matemáticas de los primeros criptoanalistas se vieron sometidos a las necesidades de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, la Cripta está condicionada por las leyes y normas de las altas finanzas internacionales y la infotecnología. Esta obra, con su ironía y amenidad, es a la criptología y la narrativa ciberpunk lo que El señor de los Anillos es a la magia y a la fantasía. Criptonomicón es un ciberthriller y el nuevo libro de culto de los hackers. ** Premio Locus 2000 Reseña: «Stephenson es el Hemingway de los hackers.» Newsweek

Criptonomicón se traslada al escenario bélico del Pacífico para plasmar las aventuras del marine Shaftoe en busca de MacArthur, así como las de Lawrence, con su imaginativo tratamiento matemático de la cualidad y efectos de las eyaculaciones, y las de un Randy enfrentado a las mafias de la política, la tecnología y las finanzas. ** Premio Locus 2000 Reseña: «Imagine a Tom Clancy emparejado con William Gibson, con James Michener actuando de comadrona, y uno empieza a hacerse una idea.» Seattle Times

Al final, ni siquiera Wagner o el «oro del Rhin» han de resultar ajenos a la plural y camaleónica trama de Criptonomicón, un tour de force narrativo incomparable, desmesurado y sorpréndete. Un hito en la narrativa moderna, con una atrevida mezcla de géneros: ciencia ficción, ucronía y thriller, entre otros, que componen una novela llena de humor e ironía. ** Premio Locus 2000 Reseña: «Este libro es sencillamente inconmensurable.» Luis Fonseca

The second novel from the “hottest science fiction writer in America” and New York Times–bestselling author of Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon (Details). Meet Sangamon Taylor, a New Age Sam Spade who sports a wet suit instead of a trench coat and prefers Jolt from the can to Scotch on the rocks. He knows about chemical sludge the way he knows about evil—all too intimately. And the toxic trail he follows leads to some high and foul places. Before long Taylor’s house is bombed, his every move followed, he’s adopted by reservation Indians, moves onto the FBI’s most wanted list, makes up with his girlfriend, and plays a starring role in the near-assassination of a presidential candidate. Closing the case with the aid of his burnout roommate, his tofu-eating comrades, three major networks, and a range of unconventional weaponry, Sangamon Taylor pulls off the most startling caper in Boston Harbor since the Tea Party. “[Stephenson] captures the nuance and the rhythm of the new world so perfectly that one almost thinks that it is already here.” —The Washington Post

Meanwhile, Newton and Leibniz continue to propound their grand theories as their infamous rivalry intensifies, stubborn alchemy does battle with the natural sciences, dastardly plots are set in motion ... and Daniel Waterhouse seeks passage to the Massachusetts colony in hopes of escaping the madness into which his world has descended.

DNA

DNA

Author: James D. Watson, Andrew Berry

Year: 2009-01-21
Fifty years ago, James D. Watson, then just twentyfour, helped launch the greatest ongoing scientific quest of our time. Now, with unique authority and sweeping vision, he gives us the first full account of the genetic revolution—from Mendel’s garden to the double helix to the sequencing of the human genome and beyond. Watson’s lively, panoramic narrative begins with the fanciful speculations of the ancients as to why “like begets like” before skipping ahead to 1866, when an Austrian monk named Gregor Mendel first deduced the basic laws of inheritance. But genetics as we recognize it today—with its capacity, both thrilling and sobering, to manipulate the very essence of living things—came into being only with the rise of molecular investigations culminating in the breakthrough discovery of the structure of DNA, for which Watson shared a Nobel prize in 1962. In the DNA molecule’s graceful curves was the key to a whole new science. Having shown that the secret of life is chemical, modern genetics has set mankind off on a journey unimaginable just a few decades ago. Watson provides the general reader with clear explanations of molecular processes and emerging technologies. He shows us how DNA continues to alter our understanding of human origins, and of our identities as groups and as individuals. And with the insight of one who has remained close to every advance in research since the double helix, he reveals how genetics has unleashed a wealth of possibilities to alter the human condition—from genetically modified foods to genetically modified babies—and transformed itself from a domain of pure research into one of big business as well. It is a sometimes topsy-turvy world full of great minds and great egos, driven by ambitions to improve the human condition as well as to improve investment portfolios, a world vividly captured in these pages. Facing a future of choices and social and ethical implications of which we dare not remain uninformed, we could have no better guide than James Watson, who leads us with the same bravura storytelling that made The Double Helix one of the most successful books on science ever published. Infused with a scientist’s awe at nature’s marvels and a humanist’s profound sympathies, DNA is destined to become the classic telling of the defining scientific saga of our age.

One summer weekend in 1949—but not our 1949—the well-connected "Farthing set", a group of upper-crust English families, enjoy a country retreat. Lucy is a minor daughter in one of those families; her parents were both leading figures in the group that overthrew Churchill and negotiated peace with Herr Hitler eight years before. Despite her parents' evident disapproval, Lucy is married—happily—to a London Jew. It was therefore quite a surprise to Lucy when she and her husband David found themselves invited to the retreat. It's even more startling when, on the retreat's first night, a major politician of the Farthing set is found gruesomely murdered, with abundant signs that the killing was ritualistic. It quickly becomes clear to Lucy that she and David were brought to the retreat in order to pin the murder on him. Major political machinations are at stake, including an initiative in Parliament, supported by the Farthing set, to limit the right to vote to university graduates. But whoever's behind the murder, and the frame-up, didn't reckon on the principal investigator from Scotland Yard being a man with very private reasons for sympathizing with outcasts...and looking beyond the obvious. As the trap slowly shuts on Lucy and David, they begin to see a way out—a way fraught with peril in a darkening world.
