Romanian Royal Assassin published
27 Oct, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, Romania
The Romanian translations of Robin’s books took two steps forward this week when Asasinul regal, the translation of Royal Assassin was released in two parts by the publisher Nemira. The covers use the original US edition cover art by Stephen Youll and it looks like both volumes were made available at the same time.
Blue Boots is almost here
18 Oct, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, US
Details about Robin’s greatly anticipated next story are beginning to emerge as first reviews of Songs of Love and Death are posted online. “Songs” is an upcoming cross-genre anthology of fantasy and romance with a line up of writers like Neil Gaiman, Peter S. Beagle, Diana Gabaldon and of course Robin Hobb. Her story is titled Blue Boots and it appears to be about a minstrel called Azen and a servant called Timbal. One reviewer describes it as “a great old English tale”. Be careful with spoilers if you click that link!
“Songs” will be released as a hardcover first edition on November 16th by Gallery. You can find more details about the book in our wiki.
You can preorder “Songs of Love and Death” from amazon.com, amazon.co.uk or the Book Depository.
Points to Farseer from our forums and her Google-fu for finding the first useful review! :)

First US edition of the Inheritance a paperback?
6 Oct, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, US
It looks like the first US edition of the upcoming Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm collection The Inheritance will be a paperback. While the UK hardcover is scheduled for March 31st 2011, the US edition was expected to become available in May 2011 but there weren’t any other details about it yet. Now amazon.com has finally listed the book (thanks to Brad from Robin’s NG for noticing!) and the following: the publisher is still marked as Eos despite the reported global HarperVoyager merge, the publication date is May 3rd and it’s listed as a 400 pages long paperback. Well, the coming months will show if all that information is correct—however the HarperCollins catalogue lists much of the same info.
So, The Inheritance: And Other Stories is available for preorders at amazon.com and our wiki page has all the information available about this title so far.
