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 Secrets of Ordinary Farm

I would try ordering it via amazon.co.uk or bookdepository.com. They can get you a nice UK edition:-)

There is (as far as I know) currently no US publisher for the ORDINARY FARM books, so it might be a while before they become widely available in North America.

Re: The Secrets of Ordinary Farm

Which really is a shame.
I'm currently reading the book to my daughter ... the German edition is out since last november.

Re: The Secrets of Ordinary Farm

I went with Amazon.co.uk. 
Can't let something like a little ocean get in the way of book 2!

I still hope it gets published over here as well, though.

Re: The Secrets of Ordinary Farm

So Ebay is now selling these copies for as little as $3.25 each. Prices vary, but I just bought one for $3.25, plus $4.00 shipping.

Re: The Secrets of Ordinary Farm

All shipping from the UK. So it probably won't be in the US in time for the moot ... what do you think Firs?
I don't have he original as a book yet ... the only Tadbook in more than 20 years that I read in German first.

If you'll think it'll arrive in time for the moot - yes absolutely!
