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.

I know there was a delay with Penguin acquiring DAW, but it still seems lightning fast. Wow! Definitely interested in seeing whatever teases Tad has in store, like the early chapter list for Witchwood Crown.

Actually, Daw was not acquired by Penguin. It is still owned by its publishers Elisabeth Wollheim and Sheila Gilbert. But Penguin and Random House merged and as Daw was distributed by Penguin, this caused some upheaval down the line.
