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: It's just a void, nothing more.

Wasn't this (non-)place called The Void? Why the (non-)name change, (non-)Kenan?

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

Nothing happened here, there's nothing to be confused about...

(I forgot Gen-X had a photo-place here so I changed the title because I thought I'd fill that void (hah). Then I was reminded about Gen's place and change this back)

Ah! So nothing did happen, as I did not suspect!

Personally I've burrowed underneath the situation.  I plan to emerge suddenly, taking it by surprise and dealing it a crushing defeat.

I shall not expect nothing of the sort won't happen.

In that case, you won't be not undissapointed.

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

I like how this thread is an exercise in doing as little as possible.

If it doesn't exist, can it be back?

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

My brain is on fire.
I'm thinking about how the Storm King sought unbeing. But he didn't return to it, so... Shrug.

I'm just thinking about "voiding the warranty" puns ;-)

Did he? I thought he sought reversal of time and Utuk'ku was the one longing for Unbeing.

I don't remember, I'm sure you're right. I have my re-read planned for December!

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

Yeah, I haven't really set the tone for this place yet... cause there is no tone, soundwaves, or moodwaves, can't reproduce in here. Rabbits probably can though, I hear they're masters at that.

Re: It's just a void, nothing more.

Yeah, if anything can reproduce in a void, it'd be rabbits!
