Tad Williams' Message Board

Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'
-    Kurt Vonnegut, 1922-2007

Welcome to the message board for tadwilliams.com. All comments are welcome, whether kudos or brickbats. However, please bear in mind that Tad would like this to be a friendly, civil message board, at least in the relations between users. We reserve the right to remove postings, or even ban postings, from anyone who crosses the boundary of reasonable taste. Basically, you can argue vigorously with someone, but watch your language, okay? We have a lot of young readers as well as grown-ups, so please show them some respect.

But the main requirement here is: have fun.

Unfettered

Found another anthology containing a Tad story: Unfettered by Shawn Speakman.

You define life or it defines you.

In Shawn Speakman’s case, it was both.

Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hogdkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Shawn quickly accrued a massive medical debt that he did not have the ability to pay. That’s when New York Times best-selling author Terry Brooks offered to donate a short story Shawn could sell toward alleviating those bills—and suggested Shawn ask the same of his other friends.

Unfettered is the result, an anthology built to relieve that debt, featuring short stories by some of the best fantasy writers in the genre.

Every story in this volume is new and, like the title suggests, the writers were free to write whatever they wished. Here is the list of contributing authors for Unfettered:

    The Shade of Allanon by Terry Brooks (a Shannara tale)
    Imaginary Friends by Terry Brooks (a precursor to the Word/Void trilogy)
    How Old Holly Came To Be by Patrick Rothfuss
    River of Souls by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson (a Wheel of Time tale)
    The Old Scale Game by Tad Williams
    Martyr of the Roses by Jacqueline Carey (a precursor to the Kushiel series)
    Dogs by Daniel Abraham
    Mudboy by Peter V. Brett (a Demon Cycle tale)
    Nocturne by Robert V. S. Redick
    The Sound of Broken Absolutes by Peter Orullian (a Vault of Heaven tale)
    Untitled by Geno & R.A. Salvatore
    Keeper of Memory by Todd Lockwood (a Summer Dragon tale)
    Game of Chance by Carrie Vaughn
    The Lasting Doubts of Joaquin Lopez by Blake Charlton
    The Chapel Perilous by Kevin Hearne (an Iron Druid tale)
    Select Mode by Mark Lawrence (a Broken Empire tale)
    All the Girls Love Michael Stein by David Anthony Durham
    Strange Rain by Jennifer Bosworth (an Struck epilogue tale)
    Unbowed by Eldon Thompson (a Legend of Asahiel tale)
    Untitled by Naomi Novik (a Temeraire tale)
    The Jester by Michael J. Sullivan (a Riyria Chronicles tale)
    The Duel by Lev Grossman (a Magicians tale)
    The Unfettered Knight by Shawn Speakman (an Annwn Cycle tale)

And it can be ordered here.

Re: Unfettered

It is available on Amazon too. As an ebook or audiobook as well and there is an UK edition as well!
