Shrouded in secrecy, it is home to the wildest dreams and darkest nightmares. Vast amounts of money have been lavished on it. The best mind of two generations have laboured to build it. And somehow, bit by bit, it is claiming Earth's most valuable resource - its children. A novel of dazzling ideas, non-stop adventure and irresistible characters, Otherland, the first part of an epic new series by a master storyteller, is destined to become a landmark in imaginative fiction.

Review:

Best-selling fantasy author Tad Williams (Tailchaser's Song, the Memory, Sorrow and Thorn series) begins a far-reaching cyberpunk saga with Renie Sulaweyo, a teacher in the South Africa of tomorrow, realizing something is wrong on the network. Some of the younger kids, including her brother Stephen, have logged into the net, but they can't get back out. The clues point to a mysterious golden city called Otherland, but everyone who tries to find out what's going on ends up dead. Settle in for a long, enjoyable ride, because this 770-page monster is just the first of four projected novels.
