    Hadn't realised Tad Williams was writing a new series but spotted part one, Shadowmarch, in Waterstones this lunchtime.

    Anybody read it yet?

    Any good?

    Just hoping it will be another Memory Sorrow and Thorn, not a repeat of Otherland.

    Only thing I read of Tad is MST and books 2 and 3 were brilliant. Shades of George Martin as he focuses on a lot of differant characters.

    I'll definatly pick something else by him as soon as I finish Song of Ice and Fire 4.

    Actually I had heared about his online stuff, though didn't realise this was an expansion of it. There is a selection of chapters on his website which having had a quick scan last night feel rather childish in their style.

    War of the Flowers was good but left me wishing it had been expanded a bit more. Only two books mind, no more!

    Otherland started so well, then did the same as MS&T in that it had a second book that felt like a filler then went good again in the third. Unfortionatly, after a nice conclusion in the third he managed to squeze out another tome to make the series outstay its welcome somewhat.

    I bought the book ages ago but have never got around to starting it. There seems to be lots of good books to read. The prologue seems quite interesting though, i would also be interested to no what its like?

    I liked Otherland, except for the last book in the series. It was a nice change from the Thorn, Sorrow, series which I found painfully generic.
