A Little Hatred UK Tour

July 22nd, 2019

I’ll be touring the UK for the release of A Little Hatred between 15th and 21st September, and the dates and locations are now out there…


Typically the lunchtime events are just a signing, the evening ones are reading, talk, questions then signing.

There’ll be copies of A Little Hatred available at all these events, of course, even if ahead of publication day. Feel free to bring your old books with you – unless I end up really pressed for time I’ll sign anything of mine you have, though if you bring loads of books (like, dozens) you might have to go to the back of the queue after one set.

There’ll be some special guests joining me along the way at some of these, with any luck, but I’ll post the details of those as I have them. You should be able to follow the links below for tickets and further information…

Sunday 15th Sept 12:30pm – 1:20pm, signing at Foyles, Bristol

Sunday 15th Sept 7:30pm, talk at Topping & Company, Bath

Friday 20th Sept 7pm, talk at Foyles, Charing Cross Road London

Saturday 21st Sept 1pm – 2pm, signing at Forbidden Planet, London

It’s been a while since I’ve done a serious UK tour so I’m looking forward to getting out there. Hopefully I’ll see a few of you on the road.

Incidentally I’ll also be at Worldcon in Dublin next month – I’ll post some details of what I’m up to there when I have them…

    You got any plans for what to sign/read when you get bored?

    Ever been tempted to go Kaufman and plough into The Great Gatsby?

  • Adam Deitrick says:

    Hey Joe,

    Are you planning on doing any US tours in the coming future for any of the Age of Madness books?

  • Sam J says:

    Hi Joe,

    Not sure if it’s a typo or I’m bad at reading (Is there conformation the audio-book will be released alongside the book?) but the London chat on the 20th says 12:30 on the poster but the tickets and you say its 7pm?
    I’m guessing it’s 7pm?

    Hope to see you then!

  • Joe Abercrombie says:

    No plans for US events around publication, I’m afraid – hard to justify the expense and effort of getting me out there, I suspect. Hopefully a US event or two will happen over the next couple of years, we’ll have to see…

    Sam J,
    You’re right. 7pm. It’s been updated now….

  • Ray says:

    Hello Joe

    Do we need to book tickets or do we just turn up on the day , I’m looking at the London event on the Friday 20th, many thanks.


  • Andrew says:

    Big fan and can’t wait for the new trilogy. Have to say it’s sad to see Belfast, yet again, ignored like a red headed stepchild. You know that the chances of getting shot or blown up are a lot less now a days.


  • Mike says:

    Hi Joe – Do you have any plans for a tour in the US?

  • Phil says:

    Is that a small typo in the Foyles, Bristol signing event time range? Shouldn’t that be 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM or do you have to rush home for Sunday dinner? 🙂

    Bit disappointed that you are not heading down here to the South West proper (i.e Exeter or Plymouth). No Sunday lie-in for me.

  • Joe Abercrombie says:

    You usually need tickets for the evening events, but the lunchtime ones are just turn up and queue affairs.

    I was in Belfast a couple of years back, and I’ll be in Dublin next month, but on a tour of this kind you generally need to hit two stops a day, which makes crossing the sea a tough prospect…

    No current plans for the US, I’m afraid.

    Couldn’t say on the timings – that’s just the times they gave me. I daresay I’ll keep signing till everyone has what they need, though. That is usually the way of things….

  • Hassan says:

    Hey Joe,
    Are there any plans for an appearance in France for any of your next books? I’d love to get a signed copy of any new book/get one of mine signed.
    Looking forward to September!

  • Chris says:

    I’m a little saddened that you seem to have a little hatred for East Anglia 🙁

  • innokenti says:

    Ah, it’s been some time but very excited for the new book and chance to go to a signing!

  • Alex Allen says:

    Hi Joe,
    Any intention to come back to Lancaster on a tour sometime, or pop back as an OL for a talk at LRGS?

  • Dom says:

    Hi Joe – coming to see you at Foyles- can’t wait! – Hurdy Gurdy!

  • gaz says:

    Gutted you’re skipping Manchester, I can’t make Leeds or Liverpool.

  • Hannah says:

    Also devastated that you’re not visiting Manchester!

  • Jeff Jacques says:


    It might be hard to justify the expense, but think of all the fun? Please come to the states! Better to do it, than live with the fear of it.


  • Sharon D Campbell says:

    We would love to meet you here in the US! Please keep us updated on those plans as they unfold. We can wait a few years!!! BTW, I just downloaded A Little Hatred from Audible and I am so excited to start listening also The First Law Trilogy was EVERYTHING! #hugsandlove #keepuptheamazingwork

  • Eve McCarthy says:

    Practically overnight, you became my favorite author of all time. I’ve tried to return to other books, and find them, not only severely lacking, but propped up and perfumed in a sickly-sweet musk to hide the garbage inside. I used to take in those books by the dozen and think, ‘oh, how lovely these are!’ Now, I have to keep myself from retching.

    They don’t have the bones. Now that I’ve seen the world through your cracked and grimy lens, I find I don’t want to pull the spyglass away.

    We would be absolutely thrilled to have you in the US–and by we, I mean an awkwardly small handful of people (with undoubtedly myself among them) with sheepish, apologetic grins as if to say, “sorry you came all this way for such a low turnout, I guess this wasn’t such a great idea after all”, followed by me actually saying those words to you, but at least getting to shake your hand and get an autograph.

    On second thought, how about I just come to you on the next go around?

    You are, indeed, beloved by the moon. Please never stop.
