  1. Only three more days ... just sayin ...
  2. Mayhaps some of you would like to have Osten Ard or Otherland related stuff: Tad is currently running a crowdfunding campaign for merch with original art on indiegogo. The first and prolly last time T'Shirts and maps and the like related to his worlds will be available. If you are interested go to www.indiegogo.com and look for Tad Williams is making Merch. Cheers.
  3. I believe the September release to be an error by the British publishers. Tad never announced that date anywhere.
  4. I'd really like a source on that one.
  5. Hope to not annoy anyone by letting you know that Tad is doing a Reddit AMA today at 8:30 PM CET/ 2:30 PM ET/ 11:30 AM PT. https://www.reddit.com/r/books/wiki/amafullschedule
  6. And Aidan loves it as well: The Witchwood Crown Is a Triumphant Return to a Beloved Fantasy World
  7. Another glowing review by sffworld.com claiming
  8. As Aidan does not seem to post his awesome piece on MS&T here, I'll gladly do it for him: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/sci-fi-fantasy/lasting-legacy-tad-williams-memory-sorrow-thorn/ It ends thus: "On June 27, 2017, Williams returns to Osten Ard with The Witchwood Crown, the first volume in a new trilogy more than two decades in the making—The Last King of Osten Ard. Some 30 years after he first introduced readers to his rich fantasy world, Williams has a lot to live up to. Like his protagonists, Simon and Miriamele, readers have changed in the interim—grown up, become adults—and The Witchwood Crown is an exploration of how people and cultures adapt in the wake of world-shattering events. As thoughtful and inquisitive as anything Williams has written, it is a promising beginning to a new fantasy classic. But that’s a story for another time.“
  9. Blurb on the finished book: "Tad Williams is a master storyteller, and the Osten Ard books are his masterpiece. Williams' return to Osten Ard is every bit as compelling, deep, and fully rendered as the first trilogy, and he continues to write with the experience and polish of an author at the top of his game" Brandon Sanderson
  10. Me, too. I think I even owned the next one at some pont but did not get past chapter 2 and donated it to charity. Poor charity.
