The All New Joe Abercrombie.com

The new website (as you will probably have noticed) is now live! Thanks first of all to Darren Turpin, who set up and managed the old site, which served me well for the best part of a decade.  But Darren has drifted away from the web design business (and into gardening), and the internet is […]

Progress Report June ’19

There have been various distractions over the last couple of months as we ramp up towards release of A Little Hatred in September.  The slow cycle of publicity beginning, some interviews to do, a tour to think about, and 5500 signature sheets to sign for US editions, among other things.  We’re also nearing the end […]
