Bits and pieces
26 Apr, 2008 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK, the two Koreas
Some exciting news from Robin herself: the Korean language rights to the Farseer trilogy have been bought by Nexvision.
And we can add one more story to the upcoming writings list: a Robin Hobb short story in an anthology from Subterranean Press edited by Yanni Kuznia—no title for the story or the book nor a release date are known yet.
Also—don’t forget to keep an eye on Jackie Morris’ journal—some very fascinating art for the reprints of the Tawny Man trilogy seem to be taking shape.
