Leading up to Loncon 3 (August 13-17) where she is Guest of Honour, Robin Hobb will be doing a UK book tour to promote Fool’s Assassin. Starting on the 9th of August, she’ll be reading and signing at Waterstones book stores in Reading, Birmingham, Sheffield, Liverpool and York as well as the Forbidden Planet in London. You can check the details at the official appearances page or the Waterstones events page. Please note that some events are ticketed and might already be sold out—it’s always best to check with the book store before you go!

Waterstones’ blog also recently featured a beautiful piece called “Charcters in Place” written by Robin about how things have changed (or not) since she first started writing about Fitz and the Fool. Highly recommended!
