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 2015

Added US audiobook re-issues of all four Shadowmarch novels by Brilliance audio.

Shadowrise was already re-issued in January. The other three will follow in August.
No idea why the re-issue is out of order, though.

Re: Past Publications 2015

Does anybody know if the US pb of Dragons of Ordinary Farm that was supposed to come out in June 2015 is actually legit or a ghost listing?

I cannot find proof of its publication anywhere.

Re: Past Publications 2015

How come Olaf, you have not posted the  new German pb edition of Shadowmarch? Tsk.
Nice covers. Not spectacular but nice and much better than the hc imho.

Upthread from April 26th :-)

I think we talked covers in the mint at some point....
They are also doing a big marketing push for this, since they are launching their new paperback line with this (and a new pb edition of LOTR). I have the marketing folder and will post some images from that on my twitter later today.

Yesyesyes, but there was no link to the covers. I could not look at them and had to find them all by myself. That is what I am complaining about.

(and your posting time is insane!)
