Melbourne

Wow!  Beautiful sunshine and beautiful city! And of course you know that I used my opportunity to wander about today, not to shop, but to look at more trees and birds. But I also got to vist Cook’s Cottage,  domicile of the redoubtable Captain Cook, which was transported here from England.  It was a fascinating glimpse […]

Headed for Australia!

Well, almost.  The plane doesn’t fly until Tuesday, but I’m already packed!  A trifle eager?  Of course I am! Thanks to SupaNova and my publisher, HarperCollins Voyager, I’ll be spending the first part of April in Australia.  I’ll be visiting Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne.  In the cities of Brisbane and Melbourne, I’ll be doing the […]

A New Lindholm Book!

 As you can see!  I received my hardback The Inheritance from Voyager today, and it’s a beauty.  The art is by the inimitable Jackie Morris, and features dual cats. Inside are stories by both Megan Lindholm and Robin Hobb. Some are old, some new, some previously published and for some this is their first outing. There […]

A post to say I won’t be posting . . .

Rather silly, isn’t it.  But I don’t like to leave things hanging. If you follow my other site, robinhobb.com, then you already know the gist of it.  I have discovered, unsurprisingly, that the more time I spend on the Internet writing blogs and updates, the less fiction I write. The solution was obvious.  And I’ve […]

E-mail this week from sundry sources: 1 PM will work for us I’ll pick up some chairs to bring, they’ll be 9 of us, I’ll be bringing a couple of hot vege dishes, a roast pork tenderloin, egg rolls and Larry will be bringing fish. I might attempt to fix some desert of some kind […]

Bill Wallace, Berkeley, CA

When I was 3 or 4 years old, my family lived in Berkeley, California, on Allston Way.  I don’t recall the house number, only that we weren’t far from the railroad tracks (and yes, we put pennies on them!) and the PG&E lot. For a time, my family had a boarder who lived with us.  […]
