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: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

Fortunately the name entry seems to be optional. What a silly thing to ask for when subscribing to a newsletter.

Thanks for posting it here, Olaf, because I haven't received an e-mail. I don't know why.

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

Neither have I. Possibly because I did not enter a name, just the mail address?

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

Didn't Deb say she'd send it to the Scrollbearers first as a test run? Maybe she hasn't gotten around to sending it to everyone else yet, and that is why not everybody received it?

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

Hmmm...possible, but would she have sent it via the newsletter database or rather as an email?

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

Hmmm...apparently this was just a test run. The "real" newsletter mailing will come middle of next week it seems.

Update: The newsletter will be sent later today.

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

That'll be fixed as soon as Strangeshe sees the latest emails, I'm sure.

(In case it's not obvious yet, there's been a bit of chaos behind the scenes...)

I got mine. I hate having to wait so long for the new books. Bad publishers.

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

"Winter 2016" is indeed ambiguous. I think it means late 2016 (October-December).
