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

Great story! It really captures childhood innocence.

If you should do what makes you happy, and no one can tell you what makes you happy, then that means no one can tell you what to do!

Re: The Sugarplum Favor (A Christmas Story)

Really....a very nice story. The sugarplum fairy seems to be related to Applecore from WOTF.


Writing books, especially long books, is a careful balance between laziness and masochism.
