About the author (1993)

Tad Williams Tad Williams grew up in Palo Alto, California. He didn't go off to college after high school, he was more interested in living on his own and supporting himself.

It never occurred to Williams that his books wold not sell and indeed they have not stopped selling since the beginning.
