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: When is Book 3 coming out

I found a Swedish store that claimed to ship it in 1-2 days so I made an order and we'll see.

Re: When is Book 3 coming out

But what am I going to do when I get my copy, and then I have both that, and the whole MS&T (less the 300 or so pages I've gotten through the first volume) to read?  It's an embarrassment of riches, I tell you what.

Re: When is Book 3 coming out

I've read the acknowledgement and the first paragraph, and both made me smile.

Re: When is Book 3 coming out

Just ordered the book, though I have already read the preview. I imagine the story won't change much after they fixed the typos. It's going to look way better on my shelf than an ebook though (yes, despite that... cover).

Re: When is Book 3 coming out

I got the notice that my package had shipped...  Should have it around the end of the week, I think.

Finished it today. Some questions answered, some not, and of course there are new questions...

Re: When is Book 3 coming out

Got my shiny copy today. But I've already forgotten most of the story, so it's a bit hard to discuss :/ .
