Two of my favourite sci-fi and fantasy bloggers, Justin Landon and Jared Shurin, have collected together some of last year’s best essays and reviews from around the blogosphere into a single volume, including Joe Abercrombie’s review of Joe Abercrombie’s The Blade Itself (I liked it, on the whole):
“Speculative Fiction 2012 collects over fifty articles from some of the top bloggers and authors in science fiction and fantasy, including over two dozen reviews. Contributors include Joe Abercrombie, Daniel Alexander, Kate Elliott, N. K. Jemisin, Aidan Moher, Abigail Nussbaum, Christopher Priest, Adam Roberts, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Sam Sykes and Lavie Tidhar.”
You can find it in the US for $11.99 and in the UK for £8.99, with Kindle and other e-book formats to follow over the next week or two.
It’s an interesting project with a lot of great pieces, and proceeds from all sales go to http://www.roomtoread.org/.

You have to give big kudos to the only guy who gets to review his own work!
“Joe Abercrombie’s review of Joe Abercrombie’s The Blade Itself ”
Click on the ‘reading’ category to the left, and you’ll find my thoughts on re-reading my first four books (relatively) recently.
Thanks Joe. You’re my favorite British male author who lives in Bath. Somewhere Mark Lawrence is weeping.
You like me more than Justin though, right? That’s the important thing.
