Finished Herald of the Storm by Richard Ford a few nights ago. Having relutantly abandoned The Shattered Crown I've now started Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding.

I'd love to see Abercrombie's take on an early 19th century "Napoleonic" Circle Sea personally.

If I remember rightly (I read it a couple of years ago so I'm probably completely wrong) the guns in Red Countryseemed more like medieval hand guns than muskets so I reckon we will still see a lot more of the usual swordplay.

Either way, I'm sold.

Well thanks everyone for such a great welcome!

Hey there.

Another Abercombie fan. :D he has a lot to answer for doesn't he? The good looking bastard.

He certainly does. For a man known for his dark, gritty storytelling, I do think he can write a decent romantic sub-plot too.

Hi all!

I'm Tom and I got bit by the fantasy bug about 2-3 years ago when I read the First Law trilogy. I've tried sucking the poison out but it didn't work, guess I'll just have to live with it.

I do write, but I've mainly joined here just for the ride.
