Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie is one of my most anticipated novels of the year and I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. I was excited, then, when Abercrombie recently released Chapter One of the novel on his web site.

The cover art for Joe Abercrombie’s Best Served Cold.

Here’s what he has to say about it on his blog:

Proofs of Best Served Cold have slaughtered their guards, escaped from captivity and burst out into the wild, so I daresay we can expect the blogosphere to CATCH FIRE with reviews over the next week or two. In the meantime, for those of you unfortunate (or should that be fortunate) enough not to be an internet sf&f reviewer, I have a little something to whet, and, indeed, wet, your appetites for high-quality hilarious yet extremely violent and morally questionable fantasy fiction.

For the ENTIRE first chapter of Best Served Cold is available HERE, NOW on my website, free of charge, for your READING PLEASURE.

You lucky bastards

The excerpt can be read HERE.
