The Inheritance news roundup vol 2

27 Apr, 2011 filed under: Robin Hobb, Megan Lindholm, Australia, US, Belgium

I’ve probably forgot to post this here : Publisher’s Weekly gave a starred review for the Inheritance and Other Stories! More recently, the Australian Herald Sun published an article about Robin/Megan and the French Wikinews posted an interview done at Trolls&Legends in Belgium (try a translation).
Also a new addition to the appearances calendar, the Garfield Book Company in Tacoma, WA announced they’ve booked Robin to appear for a signing—the date is May 18th at 7pm.
It’s less than a week to the US publication of The Inheritance! Have you preordered your copy yet?

The Inheritance news roundup

22 Apr, 2011 filed under: Robin Hobb, Megan Lindholm, Australia, England/UK, US, Internet

What with Robin doing a lot of touring and the UK and US release dates for the Inheritance being so close to each other, there’s a lot of buzz for the book online right now. Here are links for you to enjoy—let me know in the comments what I missed!

Here’s a really great radio interview by an Australian radio channel, a nice interview by Dymocks (a .pdf file) and a reader’s report from the Supanova.

At io9.com you can read excerpts from the stories in the Inheritance and if you’re a US resident and have an account at librarything.com you can request an Early Reviewer copy of the Inheritance and Other Stories (but act before April 28th!)

The UK edition is now also available as audio book read by Saskia Butler. You can listen to an excerpt and buy the Inheritance at audible.co.uk.
