Reddit AMA is done!

My AMA on r/fantasy is finished!  Thanks to everyone who came – I really enjoyed it, even if I spent pretty much all of yesterday answering questions!

I really need to get back to my writing now, but I’ll try to answer any more questions that filter in over the next few hours.  See you next time!

    Oops! I meant to ask a question but forgot to. Maybe I can get an answer if I ask here, because it’s something I was really curious about it and it doesn’t look like it was in the AMA.

    Alex Verus, like most fiction books, has the narration written in the past tense. But in the epilogue, from Luna’s POV, it changes to the present tense. What was the reason for that change?

    Thank you so much for this (especially for answering the question I sneaked in about ten minutes before the deadline!) I’ve really enjoyed reading all your answers, in this and in past years. I do hope you do more in the future; no doubt we’ll have a bunch of questions about the new book!

    Read a wee bit of the AMA, and I had to laugh a bit at (to paraphrase) “Robin Hobb’s a great writer, but everything that happens to her characters is just too depressing” if only because of a Top Ten list of series with a similar conundrum, I’d put Alex Verus right up there next to poor FitzChivarly. And poor Althea, and poor…(etc.) Dunno where you stopped, but Liveship Traders (the second trilogy) is totally the best one. And the characters are generally tortured a little less than Fitz, the Charlie Brown of high fantasy. Plus, ships with magic A.I. participating in a fantasy version of the American Revolution is a pretty frickin’ sweet concept.
