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.

LOL!

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

Maybe the void need to stop being so... vacant. Incidentally, void seems to come from the same word as vacant. (Latin: vacare = to be empty)

Does a void echo?

Almost correct Peter, this is what they become ;)

Welcome inside the void you all. I hope I can be a good host to you here.

Question: what do you seek, when you enter the void?

I am afraid the void will be very crowed if Firsfron achieves his aim.
