Roundup of new translations

19 Feb, 2018 filed under: Taiwan, Poland, Denmark, Denmark

Some recent and upcoming translations of the Realm of the Elderlings books:

Fantasy Foundation in Taiwan is publishing the Rain Wild Chronicles in Chinese for the first time starting with The Dragon Keeper which was published in January, with the rest of the chronicles to follow soon.

A Polish translation of Fool’s Quest was released in January as well. It’s a hardcover edition from MAG, and the cover art is by Dominik Broniek.

This pretty Dutch box set edition of the Farseer trilogy was due to be published last autumn, but is seems to be unavailable in online shops. Any Dutch readers here who have managed to get one?

And lastly, with Le Destin de l’assassin set to be published in March, the French translation of the Fitz and the Fool trilogy will be complete. Here’s the cover art for the first edition by Pygmalion.

New Megan Lindholm story to be published this year

6 Jan, 2018 filed under: Megan Lindholm, England/UK, US

A new Megan Lindholm story titled Community Service will be published later this year in an anthology titled The Book of Magic. The anthology is edited by Gardner Dozois. The Lindholm story is set in contemporary Tacoma and features a protagonist called Celtsie.

See The Book of Magic in PlentyWiki for detailed information on editions and contents.

While the US edition of this book is not yet listed for preorders online, the UK edition has already been added to and has a tentative publication date of October 4th. The tentative cover art posted by Dozois seems to make this a matching pair for last year’s The Book of Swords which included the Six Duchies story Her Father’s Sword.

Work, the old people say, keeps a man young. But perhaps that is something old folk say just because they know they must go on working. Be off with you, Fitz. And try not to discover any more crises for me before the day is out.
