On January 10th, the University Book Store in Seattle will be celebrating it’s 110th anniversary and Robin Hobb is one of the many authors that will attend. The event runs from noon to 5PM and Robin will be there from 1PM to 3PM. What’s more, there will be celebratory booklet composed of 110-word-long stories from 110 local authors—among them both Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm! The collection is free with purchase of one of the contributing authors’ books while supplies last and what’s best—the offer is eligible for online orders as well!
To find out more, visit Robin’s livejournal post and the bookstore’s info on the event and the booklet.

… The Inheritance! This is the much awaited collection of stories from Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm, both previously published and completely new ones. Robin just wrote that she has “completely edited and proofed it except for the last Hobb story” so hopefully we’ll have more publication details soon. The title seems to imply that it does include a very rare existing story set in the Realm of the Elderlings, The Inheritance, which has previously been available only in a promotional limited edition anthology and as as an Amazon.com short.
