• Fiona McIntosh: Voyager Author of the Month

    Fiona McIntosh was born and raised in Sussex in the UK, but also spent early childhood years in West Africa. She left a PR career in London to travel and settled in Australia in 1980. She has since roamed the world working for her own travel publishing company, which she runs with her husband. She lives in Adelaide with her husband and twin sons. Her website is at www.fionamcintosh.com.

    Her latest book, The Scrivener's Tale, is a stand-alone and takes us back to the world of Morgravia from her very first series, The Quickening:


    About The Scrivener's Tale:

    In the bookshops and cafes of present-day Paris, ex-psychologist Gabe Figaret is trying to put his shattered life back together. When another doctor, Reynard, asks him to help with a delusional female patient, Gabe is reluctant... until he meets her. At first Gabe thinks the woman, Angelina, is merely terrified of Reynard, but he quickly discovers she is not quite what she seems.

    As his relationship with Angelina deepens, Gabe's life in Paris becomes increasingly unstable. He senses a presence watching and following every move he makes, and yet he finds Angelina increasingly irresistible.

    When Angelina tells Gabe he must kill her and flee to a place she calls Morgravia, he is horrified. But then Angelina shows him that the cathedral he has dreamt about since childhood is real and exists in Morgravia.

    A special 10th Anniversary edition of her first fantasy book, Myrren's Gift, will be released in December!

     

     

Robin Hobb is coming to Australia!

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!
