More Joe Abercrombie news

The folks at Pyr have just informed me that Abercrombie's debut, The Blade Itself, is now the bestselling title in the history of the imprint!

Way to go, Joe! You won't be able to say that you can't afford the drinks you owe me, if we ever meet in person!:p

Now, if only that damned copy of Last Argument of Kings can reach me so I can see for myself whether or not it's that good. . .:-)

I'm sure I'll still find some way to squirm out of buying you a drink Pat...

Now WHERE OH WHERE did I leave my wallet?

Congrats Joe! I just finished The Blade Itself a few weeks ago, and it is absolutely deserving of all the praise. We'll try to beat the record when Before They Are Hanged hits the US.

Just finished it a couple days ago -- loved it -- kept reading bits of it aloud to my husband. Awesome it's doing so well!

Personally, I liked Before They Are Hanged even better. It's funnier, but they are both a great read. What's the ETA for the next two?

Before They Are Hanged is out in March in the USA, followed by Last Argument of Kings in September.

However, Before They Are Hanged is out NOW in the UK and Last Argument of Kings is out in the UK in March. There's a couple of UK online book companies who have free shipping to the USA so you could order them much sooner, but I think Joe's American publishers would cry if you did that :-)

Thanks for the information Adam!

I'm Swiss, so I'll be able to get it in March (given that it actually hits the stores in March) Can't wait to get my hands on it.
