Christmas Charity Sale

For the first time in a while we’re selling off a range of as-new author editions from the Abercrombie archive this Christmas, from some standard UK mass market-paperbacks, via some hardcovers and boxed sets, to some rare limited editions from Subterranean Press and Curious King. They’re being auctioned on e-bay with all proceeds (after P&P) going to Shelter in the UK. We can post internationally but it can be somewhat of an expensive pain in the arse so we’ll have to give you a quote for that after the fact. Limited editions are labelled artist’s proofs on the numbering page – they’re identical to the numbered editions in terms of illustrations/paper/binding etc. but have an AP designation on the signature page, rather than a number. You can find the selection OVER HERE, and happy bidding…

UK Tour, Friends and Enemies

A little update to the UK tour happening in but a couple of weeks… Typically the lunchtime events are just a signing, open to all, the evening ones are reading, talk, questions then signing, or in a few cases, now, an ‘in conversation’ style event with a few friends o’ mine, which will generally take […]

A First Law Re-Read

The first step in the lengthy process of revising and rewriting my new trilogy is re-reading all the other First Law books, the details of which have become in some cases a little sketchy, I will confess, to make sure there’s nothing I’ve forgotten, or got wrong, no useful characters or relationships left out, no […]

Half a King Limited Edition

Subterranean Press have produced some beautiful editions of my six First Law books already, but they’re cooking up something more than a little bit special for Half a King and its sequels, an oversize 7×10 inch hardcover printed in two colours on 80# Finch (that’s really, really good paper to the layman) and with cover and […]
