    Question about Amerasu and her magical abilities?

    Hello, long time no see! I posted this question over at Tad Williams's forum, so I thought I might post it here as well. First off, a disclaimer. It was over twenty years since I read Memory, Sorrow and Thorn in its entirety. However, I have looked up certain key scenes in far more recent...

    More of The Dragonbone Chair

    At the Silicon Valley Comic Con this past weekend, Tad announced that he's writing more in The Dragonbone Chair series. Participants in the audience squealed in delight (yes, literally squealed).

    Just finished Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn for the First Time (spoilers marked)

    This series turned out to be pretty good. I've attempted to finish it over the years a few times but never got to book two; this time I was determined, no matter how many pages To Green Angel Tower has. I suppose one thing that stood out for me is that the series ended on an explosive note...

    Memory, Sorrow and Thorn on Kindle

    So, recently, this series has become available for Kindle on Amazon UK, which pleases me greatly as I have been wanting to get the Kindle version for ages. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Tad-Williams/e/B000AQ3HBI/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1443387648&sr=1-1 Just one thing- this is three parts, and in...

    Memory, Sorrow and Thorn by Tad Williams

    The four books* that make up the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn Quartet (MST) were published between 1988 and 1993, and now seem like a half-way point between the relative jollity of authors such as David Eddings and the dung-spattered misery of the modern “grimdark” writers, in particular George R R...

    Memory, Sorrow and Thorn - book covers

    Just finished reading this and thoroughly enjoyed it. If I were to be critical I would say that it could have been "tighter" (though it didn't necessarily drag, it came close in parts) and the ending was a little easy. Anyway, that's not why I'm posting. Has anyone else realised the...

    Bobby Dollar series

    I am currently reading The Dirty Streets of Heaven and really enjoying it so far. I am almost 50% through. The story is about Heaven and Hell, Angels and Demons, working "together" to judge dearly departed souls before being sent off into Hevane or Hell or Purgatory. Until one day a soul goes...

    Outer Night

    This concept was huge in War of the Flowers. Then it got a few mentions throughout Shadowmarch. Spoilers for another book, one you haven't read yet I'm sure I'm reading through Dirty Streets and Bobby's fighting something from it... Is this just Tad using the same concept in several stories or...

    Memory, Sorrow, Thorn after Song of Ice and Fire

    Memory, Sorrow, Thorn (M,S,T) is well-known to be a pivotal influence on GRRM's Song of Ice and Fire (SoIaF). I noticed this myself when I started Game of Thrones, and it made me happy, because M,S,T was one of my favorite pre-SoIaF epic fantasy series. However, I'm curious: what was reading...

    A Turgid Wade

    Those OTHERLAND books are large volumes and rather murky as to contents. I'd say anyone who has managed all of them has had quite a trip.

    Should I keep Going?

    So I just finished Shadowmarch, and while there's a lot to like about it, I just haven't been able to get into it. While it's well constructed and the writings pretty good, I just find pretty much all the characters irritating and the setting is soooooo familiar... Anyone care to make the...

    Shadowrise is available for order, and my copy should be here early next week. Now, what was the story about again?:o:D

    The Dragons of Ordinary Farm - Speculation and Commentary

    Well, Tad's website and Amazon indicate that The Dragons of Ordinary Farm is to be released in June (Amazon says June 2, Tad says June 9 for US, Aug. 9 for the UK). Can't tell whether this is a Young Adults book or not yet, but Tad's stuff is (to me) almost always good. Looking forward to it.....

    Williams's comment on Tolkien?

    I've been reading a few reviews of MS&T online and I've seen a few of them mention the fact that Williams viewed the series as something of a comment upon or refinement of LOTR. Clearly, there are plot parallels, but I was wondering if anyone knows anything more about this? I got the impression...
