Brothers of the Wind

Recommended for fans of old-school epic fantasy and anyone who remembers Williams’s 1988 classic The Dragonbone Chair with fondness.

Empire of Grass

The second installment in this series (after The Witchwood Crown) has everything fans expect from Williams: rich descriptions; high fantasy with twists and turns; and expertly drawn characters forced to fight for their kingdoms, unaware that the fate of the world lies in their hands. Highly recommended.

The Dragonbone Chair

The runtime of this audiobook will likely put off some listeners, but if they are willing to slog through the first five or six hours of worldbuilding and story setup, they are in for an amazing epic fantasy, in league with "Lord of the Rings."

The Very Best of Tad Williams

These 17 tales have appeared mostly in other anthologies, although some were very small print runs and had limited availability. As a career retrospective, the book definitely shows the author's versatility, and interest in Williams will be higher after he announced in April that he is writing a sequel to his most popular series, "Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn."

The Dirty Streets of Heaven

The author’s many fans as well as urban fantasy enthusiasts will enjoy Williams’s take on Heaven’s less desirable places as well as his wry humor and keen insights. [Previewed in Kristi Chadwick’s Genre Spotlight feature “Hungry for SF,” LJ 8/12.
