4 Mar, 2018 filed under: Robin Hobb, US

A Farseer colouring book will be published by Dabel Brothers Publishing this April. The artist for the project is Manuel Preitano. Visitors to this year’s Emerald City Comic Con were treated to these free sample posters which feature Fitz and Nighteyes and were signed by Robin Hobb. An early preview was also posted to Robin’s Facebook back in November, showing some possible examples from the colouring book featuring Chade.

Finnish Fitz and the Fool in the future

26 Feb, 2018 filed under: Robin Hobb, Finland

Fool’s Assassin will be translated into Finnish under the title Narrin käskyläinen.

There is no publication date yet, but the publisher Otava has added the cover to their online database. Only the Farseer and the Tawny Man trilogies have been translated into Finnish previously. For many of Robin’s Finnish readers, this news means a long wait of 12 years is almost over.

This will be the 10th language the Fitz and the Fool trilogy will be translated into. All the existing editions and translations are listed in the wiki.
