Nice, Moscow and Saint Petersburg, beautiful cities, specially the second one. I bet they love Glotka and Logen in tha neck of the woods. Have a good time, and I hope you get some inspiration there… is a country full of it, in many ways
I’m looking forward to reading your Vodka Death Match posts . . .
OMG I’m going to be in Moscow then. In St Petersburg now but I’m heading to the capital next week
A challenging schedule, isn’t it? Still, why not Ukraine? I mean, why on Earth don’t you visit Ukraine as well? Seriously, if I had the chance to choose between seeing Logen and Ferro reunited as King and Queen in the North PLUS watching a superb screen adaptation of all your novels and meeting you in my city just for a brief chat, I would be at a loss as to what I should choose.
Anyway, greetings from Kiev, lots of love and good luck! Whatever you do to your readers, you’re still awesome!
In (formerly)Soviet Russia, book signs YOU
Chevi77, where did you see that he was visiting Nice?.
Mr Abercrombie, I just want to point out you have almost ruined Larry Niven’s books for me, after 35 years of just loving his work.
Reading the new one by him, I come across one of his characters, one of his stock, “Competent Man” sort of characters, suddenly having to react positively and violently to save his group from “Bad Aliens”.
I read the scene through, the whole time trying to protect my Niven Love from invidious comparisons . . . but it was no good at all. I was going “Crikey, that is so unrealistic . . . what a wimp, and talk about far-fetched. . . even Calder would be more threatening, and probably five times more effective, and OH, so very much more believable”.
