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.

Tad Williams, I just finished your series. All I can say is thanks.

I'll probably post something longer once I've had time to reflect on the Otherland books.  I enjoyed them immensely.  They managed to touch the heart while provoking thought. 

Thank you for sharing this story of yours with the rest of us.

Welcome to the board DandyFop!

Tad does not visit the board not as often as he used to but he might still see your post.

Glad that you enjoyed Otherland so much. Browse the board and you surely will find useful stuff about this and Tad's other stories. And if you feel like random silliness join us other Taddicts in the Quiller's Mint. We're crazy but usually nice ...

Okay, okay. I edited my original post, and now no one needs to be any the wiser. You can even delete these off-topic posts. Then no one will know.

No need to revise history Firs !

*grins*

I was merely referring to your re-editing of my editing of my blunder.

If I only recalled your post I would re-edit it as well.

*enjoys the confusion mightly*

BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
