Minor but important changes for theplenty.net

26 Oct, 2017 filed under: Site updates

Two sections of theplenty.net that used to have their own subdomains have new urls and the whole site is now using more secure connections.

The classic fanlisting that started it all has moved from fans.theplenty.net/rh to https://theplenty.net/rhfans/
Please update your links—and if you aren’t listed there yet, why not experience some pre-social media nostalgia and join?

The forums have also had a change of address: forums.theplenty.net now redirects you to https://theplenty.net/forums/
Again, please update any links or bookmarks you may have. For a bit more detail about these changes please see this forum post. And as always, do contact me if you have issues with any part of the site!

And if you’re not the linking kind or don’t remember whether the colon is before or after and how many slashes there are, don’t worry! Just type theplenty.net in the address bar and your browser will take care of the rest. :)

New Elderlings translations out this autumn

14 Oct, 2017 filed under: Robin Hobb, France, Germany, Italy, Denmark, Denmark

The Farseer trilogy is getting published in Danish for the first time, and Royal Assassin just came out in September in a hardcover edition from Cicero with the title Kongelig Snigmorder.

Not a new translation per se, but the German Farseer trilogy is getting new covers and titles this autumn—for the third time! This is a paperback edition, also available in ebook formats. The first part, Die Gabe der K├Ânige was published in August, Der Bruder des Wolfs is out next week and the third volume, Der Erbe der Schatten, will follow on the 11th of December.

The first part of the split French edition of Assassin’s Fate with the title Sur les rives de l’Art is just around the corner, and will be available on the 25th of October from Pygmalion.

Right on its heels is the (full) Italian translation, L’assassino—L’ultima caccia, which will be out the 31st of October from Sperling & Kupfer.
