I try, as best I can, to avoid buying books in hardback. It’s not the price but the size and weight that deters me. Anyone who’s tried reading A Game of Thrones or The Evolutionary Void on the tube will attest to the dangers of wrist strain and, worse, the risk of serious injury to one’s fellow commuters.
Still there are some authors for whom I just can’t wait and Joe Abercrombie is one of them. I’m looking forward to another cynical, black nailed, foul mouthed and blood soaked chapter in the history of the world of the First Law which, according to Amazon, will be mine in March 2011.
Apparently it’s actually available from January – so much better!
