Robin Hobb adressing the leak about a new FitzChivalry & Fool book
I’m happy that it’s confirmed but I just knew she wouldn’t be able to leave them, the characters alone.
Also not really sure if I really should help spreading this news any more…
OH MAN I DID IT AGAIN FIVE SECONDS IN THE ROBIN HOBB TAG AND I AM HAVING SO MANY EMOTIONS ABOUT THE FOOL
THE FOOL YOU GUYS
Is Fool’s Fate the last book about Fitz and the Fool?
I think it is. Many readers probably recall that at the end of Assassin’s Quest I was certain that I had finished writing about Fitz and the Fool. Then I found out I was wrong. So this time, I’m only saying that I think the story is finished. If a truly compelling plot set in the Farseer universe suddenly came to me, I wouldn’t hesitate to write it. But I don’t want to write another Farseer or Liveship story simply for the sake of writing a Farseer or Liveship story. I don’t want to take a story that could be set anywhere and force it to be a Farseer story simply for the sake of ‘branding’ it. That would be cheating, and my readers, I am sure, would not only know immediately, they’d let me know that they knew. It would be unfair to the readers, to me, and to my characters.

Men belong to the world
You think to arrange the world to your liking. So you map the band and draw lines across it, claiming ownership simply because you can draw a picture of it. The plants that grow and the beast that rove, you mark as your own, claiming not only what lives today, but what might grow tomorrow, to do with as you please. Then, in your conceit and aggression, you wage wars and slay one another over the lines you have imagined on the world’s face.
Name it as you will, claim it as you will, the world does not belong to men. Men belong to the world.
