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.
