My apologies for the long silence! Here’s a roundup:
The 4th part of the ongoing French graphic novel adaptation of the Farseer trilogy, L’Assassin Royal: Molly was published in September. The publisher Soleil has posted a 6 page preview (it’s a pdf file). You can order this album through amazon. More details about this series can be found at the PlentyWiki.
Ralph Vicinanza who was Robin’s agent for more than 15 years has died. Here is a really beautiful piece Robin wrote about him and what he meant to her writing. Locus also has an obituary. I would like to express my condolences on behalf of all Robin’s readers to his friends and family.
On a happier note, the Voyager has expanded their blurb about the Inheritance, and based on the descriptions it seems safe to say that the book will include Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man and Homecoming. The Inheritance (UK hardcover) is due to be released on March 31st 2011.
Preview the French Dragon Keeper
5 Sep, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, France
Fantasy.fr has posted the covers of the French translation of the Dragon Keeper as well as a preview sample of the text, the first chapter of the first volume (sans the prologue). The French translation of TDK is going to be split in two: the first volume, Dragons et serpents will be released September 22, and the second part, Les Eaux acides November 17th. Observant fans may notice that the order of the covers has been switched from the original US editions as well as mirrored horizontally. It will be interesting to see what the French covers for the Dragon Haven volumes will look like!
