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 never still, so a thorough redesign has been long overdue.
Thanks second of all, therefore, to Luke Burford for this new modern, slick and scaleable design which shall bring all things Joe Abercrombie roaring into the Age of Madness. Massive thanks also go to Raymond Swanland and Jon McCoy, two most excellent artists who’ve worked on Subterranean Press’s limited editions of my books in the US, who have kindly given me permission to use their art on the site and make my stuff look far better than it has any right to. Thanks also to Laura Brett (designer), Dave Senior (maps) and Didier Graffet (weapons) for the parchment-style covers that constitute some of the other backgrounds.
Content wise it’s much the same of course. We’re selling books here, people. Although we’re now selling at least one book that we weren’t before (or at any rate offering pre-orders). I don’t want to get too over-ambitious but I’ll probably be blogging a bit more than I have been for the last few years as well. I’ll aim to keep up the progress reports every two months as before, but with the publication of A Little Hatred in September, and the other two books in the trilogy yearly, there should be a fair amount of artwork, interviews, reviews, appearances and process type posts going on as well.
So I invite you all to root around, kick the tyres, and let me know what you think and if you come upon any mistakes, broken links etc…
