Dragon Keeper tidbits
27 Jan, 2009 filed under: Robin Hobb, England/UK, Internet
Although it was posted by the publisher back in November, I somehow forgot to mention it: the synopsis for Dragon Keeper, somewhat spoilerish of course. The book itself is still a work in progress, 900 pages and growing. There will also be an unabridged audio book, released around the same time next summer as the actual title. The publishing information is a bit unclear at the moment, there are several publishing dates and ISBNs posted at various sites. You can see the summary here at the wiki.
While you’re waiting, why not test your knowledge about Assassin’s Apprentice?

Publishers Weekly gives a star to Medley
5 Jan, 2009 filed under: Robin Hobb, US
Publishers Weekly gave a starred review for A Fantasy Medley, the upcoming anthology from Subterranean Press that includes Robin’s Words Like Coins set in the Six Duchies.
“Four fantasy heavyweights contribute original tales featuring intriguing female protagonists to this enthralling anthology.”
“Only the setting ties Robin Hobb’s “Words Like Coins” to her Farseer trilogy, but its multilayered discussion of the power of words easily stands alone. Fans and new readers alike will find plenty to love.”
A Fantasy Medley will be available in March in two limited editions.
Read the review, preorder the book.
