    Hi Joe,

    I’ve got a question regarding your preorders. As far as I can see, there are no signed and numbered edition available yet. Will there be similar preorder events as for the first book this time as well?

  • Gina says:

    GAH, I want to read the rest of it NOW!!! February is so very far away.

  • Joe Abercrombie says:

    If you’re talking about the Goldsboro books signed and numbered, yes, you can order:


    If you’re talking about the Subterranean Limited Editions, they will be coming, but haven’t been announced yet.

    Wow…amazing excerpt! Your dialogue and characters are always superb, and that’s not a word I use…ever. Can’t wait to read the next book.

    I also can’t wait for you to get back to the First Law world…but oh well, one can’t have everything.

  • Nico says:

    Well, thank you very much for the information, it’s truly appreciated.

  • Roger says:

    Very nice excerpt: you can already see that it’ll be an great story. The transition of Yarvi from POV to an enigmatic character is very interesting.
