Robin Hobb news and updates

L'ASSASSINO LA VENDETTA

I am very pleased to announce that Fool’s Quest, entitled in Italian  L’assassino, La Vendetta is now available from Sperling and Kupfer.COP_Hobb_l'assassino la vendetta.indd

 

And because the two covers look so stunning together, I have to share this one for Fool’s Assassin, with its Italian title L’Assassino. Il ritorno

Blame the Neanderthals

Hold Onto The Light I made a promise and I’m late fulfilling it. Hold on to the Light is a set of posts discussing depression, especially among the arts community.

Cosplay Contest results and Happy Hallowe’en!

Well, the candy bowl is by the door, the lights are set, and as soon as it gets a bit darker, I’ll put the spooky light inside my porch gargoyle’s mouth to welcome Trick or Treaters.  Hallowe’en is one of my favorite holidays!  I love the neighborhood kids in costume, the spookiness of the wind… Continue Reading

Geffen Award and Golden Fool now in Spanish!

August 17,2016

Oh, it is far too hot here. Whatever is Western Washington thinking? I have to get up early to do the outside chores, and then hide inside until the evening and the wind off the Nisqually River comes. The manuscript of Assassin’s Fate is turned in and I am awaiting what I know will be… Continue Reading
