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: Happy Hour in Hell reflections (spoilers)

Hey Julez! Great you came back.

I only now managed to listen to your song: Lovely.

I tweeted it to Deb (Tad's wife) and put it on Tad's faceborg wall.

*is curious what'll happen to klick rates on that video*

Re: Happy Hour in Hell reflections (spoilers)

I feel that the epilogue is a flash forward. Is that what most of you think?

Based on: He’d "been suckered by Hell more than once.”

Also Caz and BD are spooning and he feels “her warmth against him”

Re: Happy Hour in Hell reflections (spoilers)

It is either a flashback or a flash-forward. I don't know which, Geoff. "He'd been suckered by Hell more than once” could mean anything, since Bobby had dealings in his official job with Hell before. But the other quote is more intriguing.

(Welcome back to the boards, BTW!).

He had been suckered once, at least, but what made me think it had to be a flash forward was his feeling her warmth against him, which seems to imply some profound change in her. Great character, Caz!

Thanks, but I've hardly been on much at all. I think I participated a bit when Shadowmarch was an online attempt, and also a bit with Otherland, which is still my favorite of Tad's works. Read it three times so far.
