My apologies for the long silence! Here’s a roundup:
The 4th part of the ongoing French graphic novel adaptation of the Farseer trilogy, L’Assassin Royal: Molly was published in September. The publisher Soleil has posted a 6 page preview (it’s a pdf file). You can order this album through amazon. More details about this series can be found at the PlentyWiki.
Ralph Vicinanza who was Robin’s agent for more than 15 years has died. Here is a really beautiful piece Robin wrote about him and what he meant to her writing. Locus also has an obituary. I would like to express my condolences on behalf of all Robin’s readers to his friends and family.
On a happier note, the Voyager has expanded their blurb about the Inheritance, and based on the descriptions it seems safe to say that the book will include Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man and Homecoming. The Inheritance (UK hardcover) is due to be released on March 31st 2011.
