Tobias D. Robison was born to be taxed without representation in Washington D.C, and he graduated with distinction from Columbia College without learning to write. After a lifetime of crafting non-fiction, he moved effortlessly into the fictional universe in 2006. Robison (not Robinson!) has the distinction of having designed one of the earliest RISC architectures that was used commercially, during a career of software development that has seen the cost of a memory bit drop from $0.10 to $0.0000000000125. Robison's writing is heavily influenced by classical music, sculpture, painting and other unlikely sources. He writes as if always aware that today's writerly maxims were not yesterday's, and will not be tomorrow's.
Raven's Giftby Tobias D. Robison, Mary K. Dolan
Raven has an unusual gift, or is it a curse: a nose that can smell almost anything. During her adventures in medieval, magical Ausland, she must defeat a dragon, an army of giant-size warriors, and three evil wizards. But even the defeat of the evil wizards will not be enough. When their magic is destroyed, Raven and her new friend must avoid starvation, face lightning bolts and make a difficult moral choice. Interleaved with this fantasy adventure is another story: how does a scrappy fighter come to terms with her past mistakes, and how does she find friends to help her make amends for them? Although there's no graphic violence or graphic sex, Raven's Gift probably deserves an R rating for being very earthy.
