Joe Abercrombie, author of the popular First Law fantasy trilogy, has revealed on his website that his next work-in-progress, Best Served Cold, is gradually gaining momentum. Joe is about 70,000 words in and is shooting to finish the manuscript in May 2008, with an expected publication date of April 2009.
As ever, Joe's entry makes fascinating reading not just for fans of his work but for fantasy writers in general, as he goes into some detail about the difficulties he has faced with his new project.
The final book in the First Law series, Last Argument of Kings, is due for publication this March. I however have had the utmost fortune to procure an advance readers copy, so expect a review of the final instalment in the near future...
