There is a reason that Tad WIlliams writes novels. The long novel format gives him plenty of scope to exercise his best skills, plotting and multiple viewpoint characters, while hiding his weakest skills, female characters that only fall in the pattern of the Beauteous Virgin and his total lack of narrative poetry. All of his best drawn characters are adolescent boys. Even the grown men in this anthology are yearning boys at heart. His women are untouchable visions (or self absorbed matriarchs). In a book of short stories, his lack of scope is particularly noticeable. Oh, there are some humorous essays and two completely unfunny British sitcom scripts, but I suggest you stick to his novels. The later ones are quite engaging.
