The debut novel from master storyteller Tad Williams, Tailchaser's Song has surprised and enchanted readers for decades

"A fantasy of epic proportions in the vein of Watership Down." —San Diego Union

Meet Fritti Tailchaser, a ginger tom cat of rare courage and curiosity, a born survivor in a world of heroes and villains, of powerful feline gods and whiskery legends about those strange furless, erect creatures called M’an.

Join Tailchaser on his magical quest to rescue his catfriend Hushpad—a quest that will take him all the way to cat hell and beyond...
