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 relaunches June 2018 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 ...more

Tad Williams and 12 other people liked AndrewP's review of Empire of Grass:
Empire of Grass by Tad Williams
"The second book in the 'The Last King of Osten Ard' series. As with much of Tad Williams's work, this is less of a series book and more like the continuation of a really long story.

Where as the first book in this new series (The Witchwood Crown)..." Read more of this review »
Empire of Grass by Tad Williams
"The Empire of Grass continues the epic story set in the massive world of Osten Ard. Its fantasy at its finest because it is layered with so much history and lore. This is a world so detailed it could be real.

“As for monkeys, I would have five, and they would be named: See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, Do Pretty Much Whatever The Hell You Want, and Expensive Attorney.”
Tad Williams

“He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.”
Tad Williams, The Dragonbone Chair

“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it- memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.”
Tad Williams

Brandon Berntson Thanks for friending. Love the Otherland Series! One of the most imaginative things I've read in a long time. Still have to get to some of your other work! Peace!
