Product Overview

New stand-alone contemporary fantasy by the author of the Otherland and Memory, Sorrow & Thorn series.

From The Publisher:
Returning to the fantasy genre that made him a coast-to-coast best-selling phenomenon, Tad Williams has written a new stand-alone contemporary novel set in Northern California-and also in the strange parallel world that coexists in the farthest reaches of the imagination.

Theo Vilmos is a thirty-year-old lead singer in a not terribly successful rock band. Once, he had enormous, almost magical, charisma both onstage and off-but now, life has taken its toll on Theo. Hitting an all-time low, he seeks refuge in a isolated cabin in the woods-and reads an odd memoir written by a dead relative who believed he had visited the magical world of Faerie. And before Theo can disregard the account as the writings of a madman, he, too, is drawn to a place beyond his wildest dreams...a place filled with be, and has always been, his destiny.

About The Author:
Tad Williams has held more jobs than any sane person should admit to-singing in a band, selling shoes, managing a financial institution, throwing newspapers, and designing military manuals, to name just a few. He also hosted a syndicated radio show for ten years, worked in theater and television production, taught both grade-school and college classes, and worked in multimedia for a major computer firm. He is cofounder of an interactive television company, and is currently writing comic books and film and television scripts as well. Tad and his family live in London and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Author Info
Tad Williams
Though he grew up near Stanford University, Tad Williams was never very interested in attending college. After high school, he moved out of his parent's home and began a series of odd jobs to support himself. He worked at everything from making tacos to loan collection and managing an art store to designing military manuals. His 10-year stint hosting a syndicated radio show led to work in theater and television, which in turn got him into writing. In 1985, his first novel, TAILCHASER'S SONG, was published. This was followed by the Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series, which many of his fans consider to be his best work. 1996 saw the beginning of a new series. The Otherland series moved away from fantasy, and was favorably reviewed outside the genre community, a clear indication that Williams's work was finding mainstream acceptance. In 1998, he entered the world of comic books with MIRROR WORLD, another field he seems destined to conquer. On numerous occasions, he has expressed his interest in fan feedback, and, to this end, he regularly joins into on-line conversations, travels on extensive promotional tours, and even solicits suggestions for improving the books from his devoted fan base.
