The Rain Wild Chronicles new name for DG

29 Mar, 2009 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK

Robin’s UK publisher HarperCollins has updated their information page about the two-part Dragon Keeper and now calls the first volume The Rain Wild Chronicles—Dragon Keeper. They also have a new synopsis—but don’t click that link if you don’t want to read spoilers!
Also, the HarperCollins page stills says the UK publication date for this first part is June 25th (and the ISBN 978-0-00-727374-4) so I guess we can ignore the conflicting information about a July publication.
Thanks to Jussi for noticing this!

Join the tangle / 6 years of plenty

20 Mar, 2009 filed under: Site updates

Can you believe it’s already been six years since I uploaded the very first version of the Plenty? Here’s how it looked! In the beginning, it was just a fanlisting with some basic information and small news updates, and even hosted by someone else. But thanks to you, the visitors, the site has grown and changed quite a bit, now has its own domain, and since the wiki and the forum were added I now consider this to be more “ours” than “mine”. :) If you have any ideas about what you’d like to see here in the future, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line!

Talking about the fanlisting that started it all, it’s nearing a 500 members mark (from 41 countries!), and I have just revamped the layout and otherwise polished it a bit. Take a look, and please consider adding your name if you haven’t done so already. :)

Random quote

Death is always less painfull and easier than life! You speak true. And yet we do not, day to day, choose death. Because ultimately, death is not the opposite of life, but the opposite of choice. Death is what you get when there are no choices left to make. Am I right?
