Black Leopard Red Wolf

Is anyone reading this?  In the 90s I never would have imagined GQ doing a piece on a fantasy author!

It has been getting A LOT of publicity, and the cover is *beautiful* - so I've also been curious to hear thoughts on it. Looking forward to some fantasy faction insights on this  ;)

 I really liked 'A Brief History of Seven Killings' and I was ecstatic to hear about this. I'm really hoping to get my hands on it when I have more money.

I ended up buying the book when I saw it at my local independent SFF bookshop. I'm reading something else at the moment but will share my thoughts once I get to it!

(The cover is really gorgeous though.)

The Guardian were pretty damning, I think? Will give it a try at some point.
