If you are on Twitter or Instagram or Tumblr, you have already been bombarded by me with this news. But I’m going to announce it yet again. Just in time for gift giving, HarperCollins UK has brought out a lovely 20th anniversary edition of Assassin’s Quest, the third book in the Farseer Trilogy. Handsomely bound and printed on good quality paper, it features interior art by John Howe. You can enter to win a copy via Instagram. Or you can refuse to play the odds, and simply purchase one here at the Harper Collins UK site.
But wait, there’s more!
This has previously only been available as a hardback. Soon to be released is a paperback edition, still featuring the incredible illustrations by Jackie Morris. The process by which Jackie came to do cover art for the UK books is a tale full of serendipity; you can read it here! The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince recounts a lost bit of Buck and Six Duchies history. How is it that the royal bloodline occasionally produces a child with an affinity for the Wit? And how did such a useful magic come to be so despised?
This paperback is now available for pre-order.
