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.

Wait... which heir? Morgan? I think he's busy having something fondle his face. ;)

I was mostly triggered by the squirrels. :)

And I think we now know what is fondling Morgan, if not who and why.

Maybe Morgan's face resembles a very large nut.

Re: The Official Tad Williams Newsletter

I was hoping the quasi-humanoid squirrel thing was a joke.

I was assuming it too, but with Tad you never know!

I'm thinking he just means some type of Tinukeda'ya that is good at clinging and climbing. Maybe even one of the Witchwood Caretakers we've heard so much about. But, as Sahi said, who knows with Tad.

I think I'm more curious about the "invisible mysterious ogre" and how exactly that fits in with everything.

I wouldn't mind a Forest Tinukeda'ya, but I would definitely not be thrilled with a squirrel humanoid. This is Osten Ard, not Narnia!

Geloe said all the Witchwood tenders died when Asu'a fell. Did she lie? Or was she just mistaken?
