Yum. I nabbed these from Irene Gallo’s blog, and I’m wondering how I never ran across them before. I’m always a fan of Stephan Martiniere‘s art, and Jamie Stafford-Hill’s design work is the perfect companion. Just wonderful.

When Blake Charlton showed up on last week’s Functional Nerds podcast, I just knew I had to be on. Not for any sort of rational reason. Just that Blake found a soapbox from which to be witty, and I had to outdo him!
So, it goes without saying, I was rather chuffed when Patrick Hester and John Anealio asked me to appear on the ninth episode of The Functional Nerds, which is quickly becoming one of my goto podcasts every week (even before I appeared on it!)
The three of us shoot the shit for about a hour and fifteen minutes and cover everything from Terry Goodkind’s crazy antics to Hooves and the Hovel of Abdel Jameela, my sad lack of knowledge of the Canadian comic book industry and Star Wars to some other bloggers and why I’m intensely jealous of them, my new Kobo eReader to upcoming novels we’re looking forward to (like The Last Page by Anthony Huso and Swords and Dark Magic, edited by Lou Anders and Jonathan Strahan). I had an absolute blast and hope to be back again!
So, what are you waiting for?
From Abercrombie’s blog:
So it is with great regret I have to inform you that, following a meeting with my editor and various whip-and-sword-wielding figures at Orion made from fire and shadow, we have decided, reluctantly, that we have to move the publication date of The Heroes.
But do not weep a river of tears quite yet, my friends, for the publication date is coming forward.
Yes, indeed, the UK hardcover of The Heroes will now be available on January 20th 2011, and not a moment before. If any among you were minded to pre-order what will undoubtedly be THE fantasy release of that day, you could do so here.
The US hardcover release is still currently scheduled for March 7th, but I’ll let you know if that changes in the light of these developments. Bear in mind that the management take no responsibility for any future disappointing delays in publication dates, as publication is a fickle business, and etc. etc.
Well, well, would you look at that! Lucky buggers in the UK are going to get their grubby hands on The Heroes a bit sooner than expected. Mighty fine news! Now, if only we could get a look at the UK cover art….
