The Inheritance: And Other Storiesby Robin Hobb
Synopses & Reviews
A treasure trove of tales from a master storyteller--the first to feature works written under both her pseudonyms, Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm . . .
Before she became an acclaimed New York Times bestselling author, Robin Hobb received resounding critical praise for work written under the name Megan Lindholm. Though they spring from the same imagination, Hobb and Lindholm are separate, diverse identities, each with her own unique style and perspective.
The Inheritance celebrates the boundless vision of Hobb and Lindholm, bringing together for the first time classic and new short works from both names. The collection is comprised of three generous offerings from Robin Hobb, including the title story, which makes its U.S. debut here, and a brand-new tale, Cat's Meat. Megan Lindholm contributes her Hugo and Nebula Award finalist A Touch of Lavender and Nebula finalist Silver Lady and the Fortyish Man, as well as several classic and new gems.
Each piece is prefaced by a brief yet informative author's note, offering insight into each story's genesis. Fascinating, compelling, and wonderfully entertaining, The Inheritance reveals the full spectrum of skill and talent of one of the world's finest fantasy writers.
This stellar collection, featuring classic and new short works under both of the author's names, includes the title story, "The Inheritance," never before available in the U.S.; a brand new story, "Cat's Meat," and the Hugo and Nebula finalist story, "A Touch of Lavender." Original. 40,000 first printing.
