We’re excited to announce that Robin Hobb, one of our leading names in fantasy fiction, will be making her long-awaited return to Australia in April as a guest of Supanova. Robin will be joining the fantastic guest line-up in Brisbane and Melbourne. The Hugo and Nebula nominated author is best known for her epic fantasy trilogies including The Farseer Trilogy, The Liveship Traders Trilogy and The Tawny Man Trilogy. Assassin’s Apprentice was the first Hobb novel, and it was followed by the equally successful Royal Assassin and Assassin’s Quest. Robin has also written as Megan Lindholm. Megan Lindholm and Robin Hobb both write fantasy, but in very different styles and in different ‘slices’ of the genre.
Supanova Pop Culture Expo is where the adoring public comes face to face with Supa-Star celebrities and the creative talent that inspire their imaginary worlds under one big roof. Gathered from the wonderful worlds of science-fiction, pulp TV/movies, toys, console gaming, trading cards, animation/cartoons, fantasy, comic books, entertainment technology, books, internet sites and fan-clubs, the result is an amazing celebration.
Robin Hobb will be landing in Australia on 31 March, a day ahead of the release of her new book The Inheritance, which contains stories by Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm. She is thrilled to be coming back to Australia, and looks forward to seeing all her fans at the Brisbane and Melbourne shows. She will be appearing each Saturday 10.30am to 5.30pm and each Sunday 11am to 5pm for autograph and photo sessions and Q&A sessions at each expo. Robin will also make a short stop in Sydney between festival dates!
