Waiting for the Inheritance? Countdown has begun!

29 May, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, Megan Lindholm, England/UK

The eagerly awaited Robin Hobb/Megan Lindholm anthology, the Inheritance, has officially emerged online with some publishing details. According to Robin, it was delivered to the publishers at the end of 2009, but it looks like it will be quite some time until we’ll get to read it. now lists it, both a hardcover and a paperback edition, both complete with ISBNs (and you can even preorder the hardback already). But the publishing date for both editions is set to March 31st, 2011. That’s 305 days to go. (Well, you can take that with a grain of salt until we get a confirmation from somewhere else. Those Megan Lindholm reprints amazon was promising last August still haven’t been published. But they usually are quite correct on publication dates for new titles.) Scratch that—the Inheritance is due in May 2011 as Robin just kindly noted in the comments of this post.

We can also expect another gorgeous cover from Jackie Morris for this anthology—she is also doing covers for repackaged The Reindeer People and Wolf’s Brother (no details on when these are coming out yet). You can always find the latest details about the Inheritance here at the wiki.

Luckily before next March, we’re going to get Songs of Love and Death in November—it’s a cross-genre anthology that contains a story titled Blue Boots by Robin Hobb. It’s already available for preorders too:,, the Book Depository.

New Robin Hobb radio interview

25 May, 2010 filed under: Robin Hobb, US

Robin did a radio interview with Bonnie North at WUWM, Milwaukee Public Radio, on Monday. You can listen to it here on their website (scroll down, it’s the last item on the page). It’s about 15 minutes long and you can also download it as an mp3 file. It’s a really good interview—they discuss the advantages of the fantasy genre, how to pronounce Thymara and what was it like writing from the point of view of a dragon among other things. No spoilers, even though the basic plot of Dragon Haven is mentioned.

Death is always at the edge of now. Death stalks us, and he is ever sure of his kill. It is not a thing to dwell on, but it is something we all know, in our guts and bones. All save humans.
