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.

Thank you! That was sort of what I knew, but when it came up I thought maybe there was some newer development. :)

Thanks Aan. Mort was what Sebastian deemed the best try from what they had in the bookstore. The choice wasn't that big ...

*gasp* A bookstore which doesn't stock all 40+ Discworld books permanently?! I'd better believe that's because they all sold out due to the influx of visiting fantasy fans, otherwise I might have to suggest things with pitchforks and torches, and that tends to be not a good combo with books. (Books are very sensitive to pointy prongs...)

... there were these cool young women who had put on T'Shirts what Dog had written in their books ages ago.
Cool idea, huh?

Lovely books uploaded a new in sync version of the Stuttgart reading. Sebastian sings at 1:46.

Do we ever see Sebastian here in the forum?


Both snow and the flower itself were unlikely to have been found in the Holy Land in those days, but that has never hurt the story's popularity.  Prologue

Very rarely. Basically only if he releases a new song.
