New Elderlings translations out this autumn

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 Könige 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.

Lots of great news for German fans! First, the German translation of Shaman’s Crossing called Die Schamanenbrücke is scheduled to be published in March by Klett-Cotta. And what’s possibly even more exciting is that Robin has announced she’s signed a new contract with Heyne: they will publish a new German paperback edition (as well as e-books) of the Farseer trilogy and they will also produce audio books of it.
