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.

I feel so bad about totally forgetting the idea of writing a festschrift for his birthday.

Re: Smarch Event Calendar 2017

Should we include the moots in this calendar too?

a festschrift sounds like a very good idea and there is still time, isn't it? If you need assistance, count me in ;)

It is such a shame that we can't send him the biggest birthday cake under the sun though...

What do you mean we can't? http://www.pinkposy.com/party-cakes/ (I'm not 100% sure they deliver to Tad's place, but if not, there should be alternatives that do...) *EG*

Re: Smarch Event Calendar 2017

I'd definitely include larger moots, but do we have fixed any dates already?
