Whats Logan Ninefingers like in real life!!! That's really cool @Danica, he seems like a great interview, he's got a great sense of humor. I would just like to hear about his plans for the future. I would love to be able to look forward to some more adult Abercrombie novels.
1. Is his current trilogy on schedule to be finished this year?
2. What are his plans for writing afterwards? Continue with one of the stories he already started or start something completely new?
3. Does he plan to venture outside of fantasy (say, writing sci-fi or general fiction)?
4. How does it feel to have a whole sub-genre named after you? And is he concerned that the whole Grimdark Fantasy style became so popular that it's on its way to become as cliche as Farmboy with a sword?
And of course:
5. The number of a bank account and the figure needed in order to ressurect Nicomo Cosca
Well, I'm an avid fan of his writing, so I guess my question is regarding the future of his upcoming (adult) books. Since I'm not skilled at brevity, the details of my query are below. Feel free to downsize as you wish (if you decide to include it at all).
Back story - in 2011, Abercrombie announced that he had signed a 4-book deal with Gollancz for future novels set in the same world as The First Law. Abercrombie said this would probably constitute a standalone and another trilogy. Now, we've already had the standalone - that was Red Country that was released in 2012.
So what about the next trilogy? The ongoing Shattered Sea (young adult) trilogy is not set in the same world, and is from a different publisher besides, so I think it is safe to assume that isn't it. When can we expect the The First Law follow-up?
Also, a personal question that will be of interest to absolutely no one besides me - Abercrombie came to Dubai for a literature event a few years ago, but I unfortunately missed that. Any plans on partaking in another event sometime soon?
Long story short changing diappers like a maniac, making a name for myself as a tech writer in a new company and preparing a technical writing course I'll be teaching at a local university in a couple of months. But I missed you too
