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.

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

Re: I Got It!!!!!

Thank you to everyone who wished me well in enjoying it.  So far, I have only read the prologue and the first three chapters.  However, I really enjoyed the details about Nero in the prologue.  Tad's attention to historical detail has always been one of his strengths.  He does an amazing job escapulating the rise and fall of one of  the Roman Empire's most notorious Emperors.

Re: I Got It!!!!!

*sigh* They yet again sent me a paperback. So I made a detour on my way home to get it at the book store. Will return the paperback yet again. (Made a phone call about it this afternoon and they've now investigated and found that the information on the website was wrong and offered me a coupon to make up the price difference with the real hardcover.)
