Dedicated to…

I stumbled upon a set of comical book dedications the other day. In my opinion, they’re too great not to share, so here they are:

City of Golden Fire (Otherland, Book One) by Tad Williams
“This book is dedicated to my father, Joseph Hill Evans, with love. Actually, Dad doesn’t read fiction, so if someone doesn’t tell him about this, he’ll never know.”

River of Blue Fire (Otherland, Book Two) by Tad Williams
“This book is dedicated to my father, Joseph Hill Evans, with love. As I said before, Dad doesn’t read fiction. He still hasn’t noticed that this thing is dedicated to him. This is Volume Two — let’s see how many more until he catches on.”

Mountain of Black Grass (Otherland, Book Three) by Tad Williams
“This is still dedicated to you-know-who, even if he doesn’t. Maybe we can keep this a secret all the way to the final volume.”

Sea of Silver Light (Otherland Book Four) by Tad Williams
“My father still hasn’t actually cracked any of the books — so, no, he still hasn’t noticed. I think I’m just going to have to tell him. Maybe I should break it to him gently.

“‘Everyone here who hasn’t had a book dedicated to them, take three steps forward. Whoops, Dad, hang on there for a second…'”
