Ground-breaking . . . changed how people thought of the genre and paved the way for so much modern fantasy, including mine
One of my favourite fantasy series
One of the main reasons I started writing fantasy . . . Tad Williams' work is an essential part of any science fiction and fantasy library
Empire of Grass not only meets expectations, but surpasses them in almost all ways. Few authors manage to write a series with as much depth and relevance as Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn once in a career. Williams is two-thirds of the way through doing it twice
Comparable to fantasy's most meticulously rendered realms, like Tolkien's Middle-earth and Martin's Westeros.
It's no wonder Tad Williams has inspired so many great authors of fantasy to take up the pen. His work is, and continues to be, amongst the best of the genre
