This is flawless epic fantasy... Williams' grand-scale storytelling mastery is on full display here. Not just utterly readable-an instant fantasy classic. Kirkus Praise for Memory, Sorrow and Thorn - One of my favourite fantasy series -- George R. R. Martin, author of A Game of Thrones One of the main reasons I started writing fantasy ... Tad Williams' work is an essential part of any science fiction and fantasy library -- Christopher Paolini, author of the Inheritance Cycle series Ground-breaking ... changed how people thought of the genre and paved the way for so much modern fantasy, including mine -- Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Kingkiller Chronicle
Tad Williams is a California-based fantasy superstar. His genre-creating (and genre-busting) books have sold tens of millions worldwide, in twenty-five languages. His considerable output of epic fantasy and science fiction book-series, stories of all kinds, urban fantasy novels, comics, scripts, etc., have strongly influenced a generation of writers: the Otherland epic now plays as an MMO on steam.com. Tad is currently immersed in the creation of The Last King of Osten Ard, planned as a trilogy with two intermediary novels. He, his family and his animals live in the Santa Cruz mountains in a suitably strange and beautiful house. @tadwilliams @mrstad
