The Inheritance available at amazon.com

20 Aug, 2005 filed under: Robin Hobb, Internet

Amazon.com has launched a new service called Amazon Shorts with the aim to revive short-form literature. They are offering digital copies of exclusive short-form works, for 49 cents each. Included is Robin Hobb’s The Inheritance, a story set in the Bingtown area which was originally published in the 2000 promotional paperback Voyager 5: Collector’s Edition and has been pratically out of reach for the general audience.

Please note that Amazon Shorts isn’t currently available to EU customers.

New icons and links

12 Aug, 2005 filed under: Site updates, Hungary

There are 30 new livejournal icons by roguem and all icons have been divided to several pages according to maker and original artist. I’ve polished the layout a bit (once again :D) and added a contact form. Links have also been updated… I especially recommend the Hungarian RH site which isn’t updated anymore but displays the cover art by Csaba Zsilvölgyi aka Max.

Quotes in a searchable database

11 Aug, 2005 filed under: Site updates

I’ve installed a script to manage the evergrowing number of book quotes. Instead of trying to catch them all from the random bits everywhere, you can now browse them by character or book. You can even search the database for your favourites and send in your suggestion for new ones or correct possible errors. I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I do! :)
