Vad händer härnäst med Joe Abercrombie?

24 Jul

Den ofta ställda frågan har vi nu fått svar på. Närmast väntar en trilogi för yngre läsare, ca 12-16 år – men notera att Joe själv säger:

Before some of you groan in horror at this wounding betrayal of all you believe in, I also wrote this with established readers, and indeed with a wider adult readership, very much in mind. In some ways it’s a very similar sort of book to what I’ve written so far. It’s fantasy, but light on the fantasy, and heavy on the vivid characters, the visceral action, the mixture of wit and cynicism, the twists and surprises. I hope that it will have a wide appeal.

Första delen, Half a King, väntas till sommaren 2014, med del två januari 2015 och del tre juli 2015. Ur bokbeskrivningen:

A classic coming-of-age tale, set in a brilliantly imagined alternative historical world reminiscent of the Dark Ages with Viking overtones, [Half a King] tells the story of Yarvi, youngest son of a warlike king. Born with a crippled hand, he can never live up to his father’s expectations of what a real man should be and his destiny is not the throne but the Ministry, not the sword and shield but the book and the soft word spoken.

But when his father and brother are killed, Yarvi is propelled to kingship and must sit in the Black Chair, between gods and men, and half a man must find a way to rule as half a king. Thus begins a gripping switchback ride of a tale that will carry Yarvi far beyond his kingdom, from the heights of royalty to the depths of slavery, during the course of which he must find better ways to fight than with a sword, and learn the lessons that will make him a man.

Efter detta kommer Joe dock att återvända till The First Law-världen, först med en novellsamling 2016 och sedan med en ny trilogi, som antagligen börjar komma ut 2017.
