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.

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 (Amazon preorder is available)

The HarperCollins First look program makes the book available early for some readers.

The site also has another somewhat different synopsis that offers some more details:
Squabbling siblings Tyler and Lucinda think they’re spending a boring summer in the country, but they quickly learn that Great–Uncle Gideon’s place is no ordinary farm. In fact, the farm actually a compound filled with fantastical creatures—dragons, unicorns, flying monkeys and more. Plus, the place is run by a strange collection of farmhands, all of whom seem to be hiding important secrets. When Tyler and Lucinda learn that an evil software billionaire is determined to buy the farm—or, if he can’t have his way, to destroy it— they’ll have to act fast, and together, in order to save the creatures they have come to love. Packed with mystery and adventure, this is a high-spirited fantasy about ordinary kids in an extraordinary situation.

I just had to tell the American Book Centre that it had come out. Apparently they'd missed it, and hadn't ordered it yet. So now I have to wait for my copy. *pouts*

My local B&N were already sold out when I went earlier today, which is a good thing.  Just not good for me.

I finally succumbed to all the pressure and picked up a copy. It is not snuggled happily on the top of by TBR pile next to my desk.
