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.

Hannah Green And Her Unfeasibly Mundane Existence by Michael Marshall

... Smith

The first time the header was to short for title and author

*giggles*

As the other Conladies will confirm I hardly talked about anything else than my new writer buddy Michael Marshall Smith (reportiness will come) and his gem of a new book which blew me away mightily.

Have not yet managed to write a review to promote it to you all but found a trailer online which will hopefully catch your attention.
Go, get and read this, it is unfeasibly awesome and beautiful.

Wow.... First ever time I've actually copied sentences from a book...

Thank you Ylvs, for suggesting this book... It is indeed increasingly beautiful...

Re: Hannah Green And Her Unfeasibly Mundane Existence by Michael Marshall

By now there are quite a few good reviews on Goodreads so I do not feel mine is particulary needed anymore.
But ... I am writing an expertise for Klett-Cotta (Tad's German publisher, hene how I know the editor) atm because I really want this to have an appropriate translation (about a gazillion peeps I want to give it to who don not read English). So the pressure is even higher. And it of course is in German which does not make it easier ... Alas 2/3 of the summary is done and I hope to send the darn thing before the weekend is over.

If it works out and they'll buy the rights it will make me almost as proud and happy as the beta reading for Tad. Cross your fingers.

Oh, that is awesome, ylvs! Fingers crossed!

Re: Hannah Green And Her Unfeasibly Mundane Existence by Michael Marshall

Ja, I know those book piles. We prolly all do here. All I can say is that the last books that touched me as deeply and stayed with me for so long were The Ocean at the End of the Lane and The Slow Regard of Silent Things. I love it to pieces. I might have said so before.

It sounds like my cup of tea. If it comes out in an ebook, let me know. Between painful hands and a tiny apartment, for really real books just don't work for me much any more.
