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.

Gen, haven't you read MS&T and the short novels, or were they loaners?

Best. Series. Ever. Highly recommended. No finer fantasy in the history of fantasy. I can't believe after eight years on this board, you still haven't read them. Sooooo good. You are definitely in for a treat when you do read them. :)

No finer fantasy in the history of fantasy? That's a big call ;)

But that has been the general consensus from people I know who have read it.

Re: Collections

Great idea for a topic:-)

I have roughly 170 different editions of Tad`s novels and story collections with editions from USA, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Poland, Russia and Sweden.

Additonally, I have many anthologies with stories by Tad, numerous magzines and other press clippings with Tad content such as reviews or interviews.

I have been collecting for a little over ten years now and I have almost complete collections of Tad´s US editions and German editions. Many of them signed.

My objective as a collector has been for the last coupe of years to be a completist as much as possible. And starting with Shadowmarch I have bought every English and German-language edition that has been published in the US, the UK and Germany. Starting with Dragons of Ordinary Farm I also try to buy every foreign language edition published anywhere, which is much more difficult.

Re: Collections

I can't really call myself a collector... I buy books to read them, not for the sake of owning them. So I generally buy what's available locally, and if I have the choice between different editions, I get the cheaper one. So my bookcases look pretty chaotic.
So, let's see... (because making mostly-pointless lists is so much more fun than doing useful stuff):

Tailchaser's Song: US paperback

The Dragonbone Chair: UK paperback (signed)
Stone of Farewell: UK paperback
To Green Angel Tower, Part 1: US paperback
To Green Angel Tower, Part 2: UK paperback

The Burning Man: German paperback + German graphic novel

Child of an Ancient City: German paperback

Caliban's Hour: German paperback

City of Golden Shadow: UK paperback
River of Blue Fire: US paperback
Mountain of Black Glass: US paperback
Sea of Silver Light: UK paperback

War of the Flowers: UK paperback

Shadowmarch: UK paperback
Shadowplay: US hardcover
Shadowrise: UK trade paperback
Shadowheart: UK trade paperback

Dragons of Ordinary Farm: US hardcover
The Secrets of Ordinary Farm:UK paperback

Rite: US hardcover (signed) (and also one of the very few books I own that still has its dust cover)

A Stark and Wormy Knight: US hardcover

The Dirty Streets of Heaven: UK paperback




... yeah, it's a mess. And I've just realized I still haven't put away the Smarchcards.... they're standing in front of the books... I should probably do that before Easter...

Also, I echo Ylvs' comment about wanting to see the pictures, so I can properly drool! :)

I was the same way for many years. If I saw a book in a bookstore that I didn't own, and it was a reasonable price, I'd get it. Later, I began a serious Tolkien collection with over 1,000 items in it. My TW collection remained very small until around 2005 when I bought the New Trade Paperbacks of MS&T that just happened to be staring at me in a downtown bookstore in St. Cloud, Florida. After that, I slowly started collecting different editions of MS&T. A dear friend sent me a Finnish edition of DBC, and since then I've occasionally collected foreign editions, too.

Re: Collections

Ah, I just remembered, there should be a German hardcover of Shadowplay somewhere, too. Bought it as a present for a friend, but then I lost touch with her and never got around to giving it to her... don't quite know what to do with it now...

I'm not sure, except it's in English ;)
I started getting MST in Swedish, but they cut every book in 3 parts and I gave up after 4 and gave them away.
Doing a quick check. DBC is Orbit, so that's UK, but SoF and TGAT 1+2 are DAW, so U.S.
The rest are not here with me right now.
I believe DSoH is U.S. too, because that trade paperback was out before everything else.

In my humble opinion the only important books missing are Tailchaser's Song and Caliban's Hour. I'm less crazy about Tailchaser than most people here but I dearly love Caliban's Hour. It's very underrated if you asked me - you have to know Shakespeare's Tempest though.

Yes, however, be aware that several of the issues are sealed, so you wouldn't be able to read all of them.

Firs, could you bring the Aquaman issues? I never managed to get them and would very much like to read them. I could bring The Next if you like ...

Yes, however, be aware that several of the issues are sealed, so you wouldn't be able to read all of them.

Bring the unsealed ones then.

*wonders what use are comics you can't read*

You want to read the Next? Was the *yes* referring to that, too?

Re: Collections

Unfortunately, I don`t have a master list of my TW collection, but i really, really should get going on that one. Yesterday, my newest item arrived: a Polish trade paperback ed. of THE DRAGONS OF ORDINARY FARM that looks very nice.

There are some photos of my TW bookcases that are still on my computer. I will try to upload them. I used to have several that showed single books with Tad`s signature. But these seem to have been lost between computers.

Two pics uploaded. Both are from 2011 so it is not quite up-to-date. My collection now occupies two bookcases.

Writing books, especially long books, is a careful balance between laziness and masochism.

Ooh! *click*

Really impressive, Olaf! (But next time, turn on a light... that second photo is so dark that I can't make out the titles on the lower books).
