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: Audiobook

Welcome Randdetanna!

I know the German radio play but have no information on an English audio book.

Are you sure?

Re: Audiobook

Way back when there was an announcement for an English-language audiobook, but Tad found himself unable to make the neccessary abridgment work, so the audiobook was cancelled altogether.

However, this was way before the era of digital downloads. This coming October Otherland will be published as unabridged audiobook productions from Penguin Audio. The first two volumes in October, the rest will follow. These will be digital downloads only!

Re: Audiobook

Possibly from the audiobooks for the blind that the Library of Congress is doing. There is one such audio for Tad`s Memory, Sorrow and Thorn as well. But there has never been a commercial release of an OTHERLAND audiobook in English.
