I’ve been a bit too busy the last couple of weeks, so I haven’t made any updates here although there have been several newsworthy things to post about. So let’s get to it!
Italian translation of Dragon Keeper is now out with the title Il custode del drago. The publisher is Fanucci. Thanks to Antebar for sending this in! And here’s the news at Blood Memories, the Italian Hobb fansite.
Dutch Dragon Haven should also already be out there, with the title De Drakenziel. It is published by Luitingh-Sijthoff.
Robin and Sara Creasy (author of Song of Scarabaeu) were discussing on Babel Clash at the end of April—you can find their entries and the subsequent commentary here. Very interesting reading!

You should leave off sniffing the carcass of your old life, my brother. You may enjoy unending pain. I do not. There is no shame in walking away from bones, Changer. Nor is there any special wisdom in injuring oneself over and over. What is your loyalty to that pain? To abandon it will not lessen you.
