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.

WorldCon 2018 in San Jose

Do you know the way?

http://www.worldcon76.org

Yes, it's a year away, but why not start planning now?

Also, I think membership rates may be going up in September, so if you're watching your wallet, why not register now?

I'd love to go, but can't commit to anything until early next year.

Thanks for the reminder! I do hope we can secure a few spots for Dog on the program, that his many worshipful disciples may come and pay due respects and reverence...

That does sound tempting...

I was a gopher for BayCon. There was no fear involved:)
