Suggests a very clever ancient form of life that adapted (after crashing there) to live on Mercury. It’s not enough that he has to deal with mutineers that survived in Antarctica, he also has to do with an onslaught of hordes of genocidal aliens and traitors.

Grammar and word usage should not be something akin to a literal interpretation of the Bible. I'd picked up Stephenson's "Baroque Cycle" trilogy before finding Cryptonomicon and was instantly swept away by the astonishing depth and breadth Stephenson achieved while still keeping me turning the pages as fast as I could.
