Robin Hobb bids farewell to Fitz and the Fool | Voyager Online

Robin Hobb bids farewell to Fitz and the Fool | Voyager Online | Robin Hobb | Scoop.it
I dedicated Assassin’s Fate to Fitz and the Fool. They’ve been my closest friends for over twenty years. That’s not to denigrate my marriage of forty-six years, or the friendships that reach back to my high school. The characters we write live inside our minds, creating an internal friendship that is difficult to explain to non-writers. I’ve never heard my characters speak aloud, never seen the Fool juggle or watched Fitz impassively shed the blood that demanded to flow. Yet over the past twenty years, I’ve spent more hours in their company than in anyone else’s...

Fantasy à la carte: Robin Hobb | Robin Hobb | Scoop.it

“De son vrai nom Margaret Astrid Lindholm Ogden est une célèbre écrivaine de fantasy et de science-fiction, née le 5 mars 1952 à Berkeley, en Californie. Mais elle passe une grande partie de son enfance en Alaska, d’où son affection pour les grands espaces. D’ailleurs, elle se mariera très jeune avec un pêcheur et aura quatre enfants. Ce qui ne l’empêchera pas d’assouvir sa grande passion : l’écriture.”

DETRÁS DE LA TECLA: Entrevista a Robin Hobb (Interview with Robin Hobb)

DETRÁS DE LA TECLA: Entrevista a Robin Hobb (Interview with Robin Hobb) | Robin Hobb | Scoop.it

“¡Buen día!
Y en compensación por la falta de reseñas –ustedes me disculparán, pero esta enfermedad latosa me ha agarrado amor y como que no le apetece soltarme =S –, traigo hoy para ustedes una entrevista que, al igual que la realizada al sexy y talentoso escritor cubano Yoss, ha sido producto del evento en Reddit Fantasía. Sólo que esta vez, tuve el honor de entrevistar a una mujer de gran corazón, sencilla hasta lo admirable y que recién inicia su incursión en el mercado mexicano. Estoy hablando de Robin Hobb, una autora que, para quienes sean chismosos, sabrán que en las redes se le compara con George R.R. Martin y Patrick Rothfus.
Así que nada, disfruten de la entrevista y, por supuesto, un millón de gracias a la escritora por acceder a responder a estas humildes preguntas.”

NYCC 2014: How A Game of Thrones Changed Fantasy… Or Did It? | Suvudu

“George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones, released 18 years ago, has become a worldwide phenomenon with the help of HBO. Seth Fishman (The Well’s End), Robin Hobb (Fool’s Assassin), Gail Z. Martin (War of Shadows), Garth Nix (Clariel), David J. Peterson (Living Language Dothraki), Patrick Rothfuss (The Slow Regard of Silent Things), and Cinda Williams Chima (The Sorcerer Heir) discuss influences and how politics, power and dysfunctional families have always been the best fodder for fantasy.”
