Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Epic in scope and size, this near-future cyberspace adventure has likable characters, heinous villains, a plethora of classical references, and a slew of powerful action sequences that propel its many-tiered plot forward....Though the sheer weight of the series is daunting, Williams fills his pages with the sort of stories and characters that readers of epic fantasy are sure to love." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The sheer breadth of Williams' knowledge and the richness of his imagination make this book, like its predecessors, a complex and slow-paced feast. Otherland still remains the state of the art in integrating virtual reality and folklore into a single comprehensive narrative..." Roland Green, Booklist

Synopsis:

Mountain of Black Glass is the third volume of Tad Williams' highly acclaimed four-book series, Otherland. A truly unique reading experience combining elements of science fiction,fantasy, and techno-thriller, it is a rich epic tale in which virtual reality could prove the key to a whole new universe of possibilities for the entire human race--or become the exclusive domain of the rich and the ruthless as they seek a technological pathway to immortality....

Synopsis:

First time in paperback--a bestselling phenomenon described by "Locus" as "a big colorful novel full of real-world conspiracy and virtual reality wonders, with characters worth caring about". After receiving a cryptic message that supposedly contains the key to surviving in the virtual reality network known as "Otherland", Orlando Gardner and his companions attempt to save a kidnapped member of their group.
