New Hobb article in The Times

18 Sep, 2005 filed under: Robin Hobb, Internet

The Times published a new article about Robin Hobb yesterday, the 17th of September. It discusses the fantasy genre vs. main stream literature, ideas behind her previous trilogies, Hobb’s life experiences and introduces Shaman’s Crossing (slight spoilers for the themes and characters). They have an online version of it available, so you can read it at their site. It’s titled Hits and near-myths.
Note from your obsessed webmaster: the quote in the article is by the Fool, not Fitz.

16 Sep, 2005 filed under: Robin Hobb, the Netherlands

The Dutch translation of Shaman’s Crossing has been released with the title Overgangsritueel (De Boeken van De Zoon van de Krijger).
The publisher has changed to Luitingh Fantasy and Howe’s cover work has been switched so that the forest is in the front cover and the sword is in the back.

Random quote

Humanity fears no rivals. You have forgotten what it was to share the world with creatures as arrogantly superior as yourselves. You think to arrange the world to your liking. So you map the land and draw lines across it, claiming ownership simply because you can draw a picture of it. The plants that grow and the beasts that rove, you mark as your own, claiming not only what lives today, but what might grow tomorrow, to do with as you please. Then, in your conceit and aggression, you wage wars and slay one another over the lines you have imagined on the world´s face.
