Anyone can go there … coming back is another story.
New York Times bestselling author Tad Williams has become a force to be reckoned with in the publishing world, as is evident from the enormous popularity and critical acclaim for his spectacular Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn series. Now, DAW Books is proud to present Tad Williams’ groundbreaking new masterpiece and his most compelling work to date—the Otherland series—a bold new vision of a frighteningly possible tomorrow.
The first in a series of four books, City of Golden Shadow is a complex suspense novel of the near future where virtual reality has expanded to encompass all aspects of society—and national, physical, and mental boundaries are limited only by the virtue or darkness of the imagination, offering an entirely new level of freedom to people in all walks of life. But a blood-chilling conspiracy involving the world’s most powerful individuals now threatens to shatter this world to its very core.
“Well-drawn, sympathetic characters.”
“Williams brings the virtues of historical literacy and more than competent prose to his massive undertaking.”
