Spoilerific Confirmation for Joe Abercrombie's RED COUNTRY

Caution: Spoilers Ahead...



According to the most recent Gollancz catalogue, Red Country is finally going to reveal the fate of Abercrombie's most beloved character, the Bloody Nine himself.
"His name is Logen Ninefingers. And he’s back for one more adventure... 
Joe Abercrombie is the most successful genre novelist of his generation, with a remarkable, cynical and powerful voice cutting through the clich├ęs of the fantasy genre to create something compelling and exceptionally commercial. A Red Country is his most powerful novel yet."
Is it November yet?

Who am I kidding? I'll be importing this from the UK as soon as it is released in September.

  1. Just absolutely enjoyable. And bringing back the bloody nine-well. I highly recommend the entire series. They are truly wonderful. More philosophical gems than most!

  2. Joe Abercrombie's books are known for being dark and gritty. What people rarely mention is that they have a fair amount of dry humor and clever imagery in them as well. The quotable lines are surprisingly frequent. What I'm trying to say is that Abercrombie's writing was a lot more enjoyable to me than that of a lot of fantasy writers.
