Fool’s French Fate
17 Feb, 2006 filed under: Robin Hobb, Megan Lindholm, France
The final part of the splitted French translation of the Tawny Man trilogy, Adieux et Retrouvailles, has been released today and is on the 5th place in the best sellers list at amazon.fr! Shaman’s Crossing will be translated next, and there are rumours of a possible The Gypsy translation as well. As always, French fans should keep an eye on the excellent Les Rivages Maudits for all the local Hobb news.
