First synopsis for Joe Abercrombie's A RED COUNTRY

Joe Abercrombie just unveiled the first synopsis for A Red Country on his website:

Shy South comes home to her farm to find a blackened shell, her brother and sister stolen, and knows she’ll have to go back to bad old ways if she’s ever to see them again. She sets off in pursuit with only her cowardly old step-father Lamb for company. But it turns out he’s hiding a bloody past of his own. None bloodier. Their journey will take them across the lawless plains, to a frontier town gripped by gold fever, through feuds, duels, and massacres, high into unmapped mountains to a reckoning with ancient enemies, and force them into alliance with Nicomo Cosca, infamous soldier of fortune, a man no one should ever have to trust...

The current tentative release date appears to be late fall 2012 for the moment.

Bring it on!

Say one thing about Abercrombie, say that he runs a magnificent blog and keeps his fans updated on what they are actually interested in.

I completely missed the none bloodier line the first time I read this synopsis. It has to be the Blood Nine? Right?

Word. I imagine Joe writing that little synopsis, putting in the words None bloodier, sitting back, smiling and just waiting to see the reaction.

Return of the Bloody-Nine would be too good! I'm also super excited we get more hilarity from Nicomo Cosca!
