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 Dragons of Ordinary Farm-Sold!

Well, as far as we know Deborah & Tad are currently working on #3, but I doubt that they will use that title. More likely it will be something like THE SOMETHING OF ORDINARY FARM, so that the titles match.

However, it is next to impossible to get a false listing in a bibliographic database removed:-(
Remember the classic Otherland bin empty. That guy has been around for ages:-)

I wonder if this is something that SS takes care of, or if I/we need to alert Deb.

Oh, I didn't forget Bin Otherland Empty! (In fact, I was reminded of BOE when I posted this query). No, I'll never forget Bin Otherland Empty... how could I? It's Tad's most critically-acclaimed and hard-to-find work, after all.

Re: The Dragons of Ordinary Farm-Sold!

BTW, it might be worthwhile to check on who is giving Tad's and Deb's books three stars for books that haven't ever been released...
