Product description

Review

Praise for the Otherland series:

"Tad Williams is the brightest and best of the fantasists working in what is so often, and so inaccurately, described as 'the tradition of J.R.R. Tolkien'." ―Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods

"Irresistible characters, challenging ideas, an intricate, and startlingly possible plot―everything any reader of SF or fantasy could ask for in a novel, with gorgeous writing besides. A dazzling book." ―Melanie Rawn, author of Dragon Prince

"This brilliantly crafted book delivers even more than its title promises: not one other land but many come to life here, each engrossing, glittering, and dangerous. In this intricate geography of the mind Williams tells a cracking good story, but even as the suspense builds, you come to realize that you're seeing a strangely familiar world―ours as it might come to be. Otherland is one of the best works of science fiction I've ever read." ―Katharine Kerr, author of the Dragon Mage series

"On an epic scale, and most impressive of all (1996's SF novels), is Otherland, a big colorful novel full of real-world conspiracy and virtual reality wonders, with characters worth caring about." ―Locus

"Otherland has sparked a phenomenon, drawing even fans who don't normally read science fiction with a mix of futurism, fantasy, and social criticism." ―Metro Santa Cruz

"A wonderful mixture of visual imagery and movement...once again Tad Williams paints us a picture so vivid and real that it becomes three dimensional. Highly recommended..." ―Absolute Magnitude

"Tad Williams proves himself as adept at writing science fiction as he is at writing fantasy. Best of all, however, are Williams's well-drawn sympathetic characters." ―Publishers Weekly

"The ultimate virtual-reality saga, borrowing motifs from cyberpunk, mythology, and world history." ―San Francisco Chronicle

About the Author

Tad Williams is a California-based fantasy superstar. His genre-creating (and genre-busting) books have sold tens of millions worldwide. His works include the worlds of Otherland, Shadowmarch, and Osten Ard--including the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn, and The Last King of Osten Ard series--as well as standalone novels Tailchaser's Song and The War of the Flowers. His considerable output of epic fantasy, science fiction, urban fantasy, comics, and more have strongly influenced a generation of writers. Tad and his family live in the Santa Cruz mountains in a suitably strange and beautiful house.
