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.

Re: Past Publications 2013

Don't forget The Diary of a Dragon, which was announced in 2012, but which is still on pre-order status as of this week. It will be released in the US (in print) on April 30, 2013.

Good list. :)

Re: Past Publications 2013

Re: Past Publications 2013

Maybe it would be useful to have a list of Tad`s short stories. Sometimes it is difficult to keep track of them and there have been quite a few in recent years. And not all of them have been collected in RITE and A STARK AND WORMY KNIGHT.

Re: Past Publications 2013

I agree. Working on that, too -- I've had a list from way, way back but it's somewhat out of date, and I'm quite sure I've missed some of the reprints.

I'll dig around a bit later and will post what I have currently; updating will have to come somewhat after -- but anyone who wants to post updates/corrections is certainly welcome!

Right now I'm sort of all over the place, juggling details of the books & stories for a mini-database/table thingy, as well as new/revamped pages -- well, actually Custom Post Types (which are being planned/designed now) and their landing pages (for "Series", "Novels", etc.). Then there's a Cover Art Gallery revisit (gallery page formatting as well as image management). And a scramble to make sure I have all the edition details, all countries.

It's a Gordian Knot with no sword in sight. :/

Re: Past Publications 2013

It is quite fascinating how difficult it already is to research the publication history of an author who has been published (only) for  the last 25-30 years. If I can be of any help, let me know.

Re: Past Publications 2013

Update:

The Very Best of Tad Williams (March 2014) Tachyon Publications
New short story collection (probably a best of RITE and STARK AND WORMY KNIGHT) At least one brand-new story.

Previously collected in multi-author anthologies and limited hardcover editions, these superlative tales of dragons, super-soldiers, wizards, cyberpunks, heroes, and fools, are now available together for the first time in paperback. Showcasing the exhilarating breadth of Williams’ imagination, these stories hearken to the tales of such classic fantasists as J. R. R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Ray Bradbury, and Peter S. Beagle. Including an original tale written specifically for this volume, this career retrospective from one of the most-beloved authors of the genre is a true delight to those who have imagined themselves in fantastic worlds beyond the everyday and mundane.

Re: Past Publications 2013

Interesting. Tachyon is John Joseph Adams' publ. co. based in San Francisco, but I don't find any reference to this anthol at amazon.com or on Tachyon's website or FB page. Of course the date is almost a year away, so perhaps too soon? Still, it's odd that there's already a cover and details for the English anthol on amazon.de....

I want to add this to the 'Forthcoming' post, but have been reigned-in recently on speaking too soon on a topic or two. Any more details?

Re: Past Publications 2013

Nope. No more details to be found anywhere. After I discovered the listing on Amazon.de (which I usually check once a day), I did a quick search, but was unable to find any other mention of this. So, it was pretty much added to Amazon today. But if it is on Amazon, it will quickly find its way into all kinds of databases:-)

Re: Past Publications 2013

I sent a quick note to Tad & Deb asking if they'd confirm. May also send a query to Tachyon. Love the cover and that a new collection is coming, but don't want to get cart before horse again site-wise :/

Also, Deborah tweeted the Tachyon cover image, so I guess it`s official:-)

Re: Past Publications 2013

Yes, I got her reply last night but didn't have a chance to post here (let alone on the blog). Will post an update today with all the new publication info.

Which, btw, there's another anthology coming in 2014 with a new Tad story -- DEAD MAN'S HAND: An Anthology of the Weird West (May 2014, Trade Paperback), -- also from John Joseph Adams: http://www.johnjosephadams.com/blog/201 … mans-hand/

Tad's story: "Medicine Dance, Arizona"

Also note that one of our Smarchers has a story in it too: "Second Hand" by Rajan Khanna (who used to go by Kehv here)

Re: Past Publications 2013

Awesome, Olaf, thank you. :)

I've copied your listing over to a "Note" on Tad's Facebook Page as well:
https://www.facebook.com/notes/tad-will … 9666192212

I'll also be adding a Note listing the eBooks (though that list likely needs updating, too).

I hope to be able to develop Tad's FB Page a little further, better formatting/images/etc., with tabs (or 'apps' as FB wants to insist) which look similar to the website. But that will require spending more time learning the FB App Developer stuff (which I've checked into, but haven't spent a lot of time on it yet). Soon.

Re: Past Publications 2013

Two of the forthcoming listings are now somewhat dubious:

The announced unabridged audio of DER BLUMENKRIEG by audible.de has failed to materialize. And disappeared from preview listings. I have inquired at audible, but no reply yet.

Even more mysterious is ANGE IMPUR , the presumed French translation of TDSOH, in some listings it is now listed without Tad`s name attached to it. Pub dates also vary from June to July. I guess we just have to wait and see.

Re: Past Publications 2013

Heard from Audible.de about DER BLUMENKRIEG.

They don`t know why the production has been cancelled since they were only going to distribute it. Tad`s longtime German audiopublishers, DER HÖRVERLAG, was going to produce it. I am going to inquire there, but since they are already doing several unabridged TW audiobooks this year (three MS&T plus Bobby Dollar), I imagine they might well wait till 2014 to do any more TW.


I also could not find any more information about the upcoming French Bobby Dollar translation, so I am deleting both entries from the list for now. Will update again, when something substantial comes up.
