A computer virus is manifested as a drug called Snow Crash that is transmitted visually from computer screens to unsuspecting users, frying their brains. Hiro Protagonist, a computer hacker/samurai swordsman/pizza delivery driver, investigates and tries to stop the takeover of postmodern civilization.
