Ken has run one of his ‘Questions Five’ interviews with me over on his long-established blog Neth Space. For those that don’t know, it’s an attempt to ask five questions an author will never have been asked before, and hence to illicit unexpected and hilarious responses.
He’s also reviewed the book, as it goes, and he kinda liked it:
“The Blade Itself easily equals anything released in epic fantasy in the past few years, and just may rise to the top … This book is about characters first, and Abercrombie skillfully portrays them with near-perfect internal and external dialogue set at an ideal pace … he stops just short of spitting in the face of genre and set my heart racing through some the best written fight scenes of any genre. This one is not just for fans of epic fantasy.”
