Otherland is a realm of the imagination where anything can happen, a triumph of
technology, a virtual world of enormous complexity and possibility. But Otherland
is owned and controlled by a secret cartel, the Grail Brotherhood. And the sinister
Brotherhood's motives in funding and developing this electronic wonderland

Trapped in frighteningly real and dangerous scenarios, a small group of people is struggling to survive and to, uncover the true nature of the conspiracy. Their quest running perilously short of time, they will have to suffer the ferocity of the siege of Troy and battle against the might of the Egyptian gods - and find their way to the Mountain of Black Glass. But even there, the danger will not be over ...
In the Otherland series, Tad Williams' extraordinary imagination and storytelling skills have combined to create a rich, powerful and utterly compelling tale. It is one of the most remarkable works in the history of genre fiction.
