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: Forthcoming Publications 2017

Utracony świat (The Heart of What Was Lost), ISBN 978-83-8062-200-5


Przekład: Janusz Szczepański

Tad Williams, po dwudziestu trzech latach od zakończenia fantastyczne- go cyklu „Pamięć, smutek i cierń” po- nownie zaprasza czytelnika do krainy Osten Ard. Nowa powieść podejmuje narrację niemal dokładnie tam, gdzie kończy się Wieża Zielonego Anioła. Wy- czerpane wielką bitwą o losy świata resztki obu armii przegrupowują siły na skutej lodem Północy. Spotkamy
tu dwie z najlepszych postaci„Pamięci, smutku i ciernia”: szlachetnego księcia Isgrimnura i jego niezłomnego druha Sludiga; autor wprowadza też nowych frapujących bohaterów – Porta, ryce-
rza z Południa, oraz Vijekiego, mistrza inżynierii wojennej u Nornów, rasy,
z którą wojowali Isgrimnur i Porto.
Williamsowi udało się odtworzyć dy- namikę, która nie pozwalała czytelni- kowi oderwać się od lektury. Królestwo Osten Ard nadal żyje i fascynuje – war- to je znowu odwiedzić.

Re: Forthcoming Publications 2017

Dutch edition of The Witchwood Crown (to be published in two parts in October´17 and February´18)

De Kroon van het Heksenhout 1 Tad Williams

http://www.lsamsterdam.nl/boek/de-kroon … senhout-1/

ISBN: 9789024567379
Pagina's: 400
Verwacht: 12-10-2017
Serie: De Laatste Koning van Osten Ard - 1

De Kroon van Heksenhout is het vervolg op Tad Williams’ Heugenis, Smart en het Sterrenzwaard en het daaropvolgende tussendeel Het Hart van Steen. Het boek is opgesplitst in twee delen.

Dertig jaar zijn verstreken sinds de gebeurtenissen in de eerdere romans uit het vierdelige Heugenis, Smart en het Sterrenzwaard, en nu staat de wereld van Osten Ard wederom op een gevaarlijk kruispunt. Het rijk wordt bedreigd door strijdkrachten die tweedracht zaaien, terwijl oude bondgenoten zijn verdwenen, en anderen een duistere kant op worden gelokt.

Maar misschien nog wel het angstaanjagendste van alles is dat de Nornen – de lang geleden verslagen elfenvijand – zich weer roeren. Vastbesloten de door mensen geregeerde landen die ooit van hen waren weer terug te winnen...

‘Williams heeft zichzelf overtroffen. Dit boek is vrijwel onmogelijk om neer te leggen tijdens het lezen. Een instant klassieker.’ Kirkus

De Kroon van Heksenhout deel II verschijnt februari 2018.
