Re: Tailchaser's Song

I've recently finished it. A delightful read, one of those books you could read over and over and never grow tried off.

Re: Tailchaser's Song

I haven't really read it, I think I read the first few pages. But I've never really liked stories where animals were the main characters, which explains why I've never really gotten into Tailchaser's Song, or even the Redwall series.....

Re: Tailchaser's Song

I belive it's excellent from what my friends say. I've got it but am yet to fully read it cover to cover.

Re: Tailchaser's Song

I've read a bit of otherland, and always see Tad's books on the shelves, but I don't know where to start with his fantasy. From you guys who have read his stuff, would you recommend starting with Tailchaser's Song? Or is there a better place to jump in, like his later series'?
Thanks!

Re: Tailchaser's Song

I'd go with Memory, Sorrow and Thorn. I loved that series, and it is long overdue for a reread. This series was also an inspiration for GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire, but I don't see how, quite yet. The two worlds are quite a bit different, except maybe the structure of the kingdoms of Westeros.

It's more conceptual. Fantasy with real people wasn't a thing in the late 80's. Instead it was more idealized realms with big super-villains. Much like The Wheel of Time has one giant supervillain...

Re: Tailchaser's Song

Cool stuff! If Tad inspired Martin's world, then I'm in. Perhaps I will be modifying my reading list for what to tackle when I'm done Dance with Dragons in a couple of months...thanks guys!

Well, there's that and the fact that his wife has started following me on Twitter...the wind's blowing from two directions!
