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.

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.
