Joe Abercrombie's website is finally up and running!

Many Canadian and European fantasy readers have read and enjoyed Abercrombie's The Blade Itself and Before They Are Hanged. Fortunately for US residents, Pyr will be publishing the American edition of The Blade Itself in September.

Those who hang out on http://www.sffworld.com/ and http://asoiaf.westeros.org/ are undoubtedly aware that Joe can be found lurking and posting on those two boards. Even better, he has updated his website.

So if you want to learn more about one of the bright new voices in the fantasy genre, check out http://www.joeabercrombie.com/.

Joe called the Hotlist «The gold-standard of sf&f blogs.» Is there any doubt that this guy knows his shit!?!

I will do a few things to help promote this title, so stay tuned for that. Meanwhile, visit Joe's website and see if its content can pique your curiosity in such a way that you'll be tempted to give his debut a shot.

Joe's a natural storyteller and these are great books which deserve to be more widely read. I hope that the US editions coming out will help him gain the popularity that he deserves.

Alright!

Just in time for my newly posted interview with Joe!

That cover for Last Argument of Kings is all kinds of awesome! Glad to see the style and quality of his trilogy has stayed consistent throughout!

To anyone who hasn't picked up Joe's series... do youself a favour and do it! His first two novels are out now in Canada and the UK and The Blade Itself is going to see a US release in the US. You won't be disappointed.

Hi Pat -

Actually, you've jumped the gun there. That's still the holding page, it's been live for a couple of months now... we're just putting the finishing touches to the full site, which will hopefully appear by the end of the week.

Okay, now the full version of the site is live... turns out there was less finalising to do than we thought... :)

Great news, Ariel!

Hopefully the site will allow heaps of new readers to discover Joe and his books!:-)

That's certainly the plan. There's a 63-page pdf excerpt from the US edition of The Blade Itself on there if anyone is curious as to what Joe's fiction is like, as well as shorter excerpts from the other two books in the series.

And Joe is blogging on there as well!
