(October 31, 1959 –)

An American author and frequent Hugo nominee. His later books are very rewarding, but very long.

He coined metaverse in his 1992 novel, Snow Crash, which may also have been the first work of sf to adopt the term avatar from the gaming industry, which in turn adopted it from Hinduism.
