WOW ...

So I just finished reading the whole Otherland series ... *collapses after breaking the ribbon at the marathon finish line* ... AMAZING!!  I laughed, I cried, I got pissed off ... I don't know if Tad reads these posts but if you do I just want to say THANK YOU for writing such a fantastic series of books!!

This is my first post so just wanted to say hello! to everyone! *waves*

While I was searching on information on Tad and his work, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Otherland would be an online game!!  As a player of MMORPG's for the past 10 years (EverQuest and WoW mainly, Asheron's Call, DAoC, D&D, The Matrix, etc. etc.,) I was super excited to hear about this and can't wait to try it out!

<3 Peace and love <3

Welcome aboard Fantasyfire! And yes, Tad does prowl these boards. Sometimes when he finds a minute in between his writing and parenting duties, he even posts.

Facebook counts as writing, then?

Re: WOW ...

Hi! Just finished reading Otherland series and just wanted to say exactly the same thins that Fantasyfire did, so I decided just to add to this topic, instead of creating a new one.
That was amazing series, great storytelling that left with that empty feeling of leaving some good friends when I finished it. I really liked the characters, the book made me laugh and cry, so I would really, really thank you Tad for writing it.
Also, having skimmed the forums before posting - no, I don't think the happy ending was particularly happy one.

Btw, this is my first post on the forums, so hello everyone.

Re: WOW ...

Same. Finished it about a month ago. Thought it was awesome!

Thanks so much, Tad! This was one of the best series I have ever read.

I have not been this excited about a piece of fiction since I was a teenager. I would love to see more stuff this cool in the universe. (What I really want is more otherland, a 3000 page, 4 book sequel).
