Finnish Fitz and the Fool in the future

26 Feb, 2018 filed under: Robin Hobb, Finland

Fool’s Assassin will be translated into Finnish under the title Narrin käskyläinen.

There is no publication date yet, but the publisher Otava has added the cover to their online database. Only the Farseer and the Tawny Man trilogies have been translated into Finnish previously. For many of Robin’s Finnish readers, this news means a long wait of 12 years is almost over.

This will be the 10th language the Fitz and the Fool trilogy will be translated into. All the existing editions and translations are listed in the wiki.

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.

The David Gemmell Awards longlist voting has opened. Assassin’s Fate is listed for the Legend Award and its cover art by Jackie Morris and Stephen Raw is listed for the Ravenheart Award. You can vote here until the 30th of March.

Darkstars Fantasy News published a really good interview to coincide with the rerelease of the German translation of the Farseer trilogy. It’s available in German as well as in English.

The Brave New Words podcast had Robin as a guest some time ago. The episode is #2.25 and the interview starts at 42:38.

To mark the occasion of The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince being released as a paperback in November, HarperVoyager published a blog post about it written by Robin herself.

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 amazon.co.uk 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.

Many´s the time since then that a smile, a compliment on how well my horse had been cared for, and a quick question put to a stable boy brought me information that all the coin in the kingdom couldn´t have bribed out of him.
