A (distant) prequel to Cryptonomicon

Quicksilver is the newest novel by Neal Stephenson. A cursory glance at this website would seem to reveal that the book is about the ancestors of the characters in Cryptonomicon. An interesting idea, though I’m a little doubtful. You can read an excerpt of the book here.
