Stephen Bury = Pseudonym
Stephen Bury = Neal Stephenson + his Uncle
Stephen Bury = Neal Stephenson + J. Frederick George
J. Frederick George = George Jewsbury
∴ Stephen Bury = Neal Stephenson + George Jewsbury
Random House has rereleased Interface and The Cobweb (two pretty great technothrillers cowritten by Neal Stephenson and George Jewsbury). They were formerly released by the pseudonymous “Stephen Bury,” but now they are re-attributed to Neal Stephenson and the pseudonym J. Frederick George.
This was news to me. I mean, I knew it was N.S. and his uncle, but I didn’t realize it was going to be explicitly public.
