An Evening With Joe Abercrombie

Monday 16th September 18:30 at Birmingham

Join us for an evening with celebrated fantasy author Joe Abercrombie, to celebrate the release of A Little Hatred; the much-anticipated first book in The Age of Madness trilogy.

Joe Abercrombie is the author of nine novels and his work has been shortlisted for the World Fantasy Awards, British Fantasy Awards, John W. Campbell Award and the David Gemmell Legend Awards. In this visceral story of bloody revolution, he combines sharp new characters with some familiar faces from his 5 million copy selling First Law trilogy.

Written with Abercrombie’s trademark flair and originality, the new series offers a gripping take on the industrial revolution, the power of money and the dangers of politics, especially when being stabbed in the back is a far from metaphorical experience:

The chimneys of industry have risen and the world seethes with new opportunities. But who will rise from the ashes and who will fall beneath the gears?

On the blood-soaked borders, the man they refer to as ‘The Young Lion’ struggles to win fame on the battlefield and defeat marauding armies. He hopes for help from the crown the king’s son is a feckless prince, a man who specialises in disappointments.

Whereas in the heart of the city the world has changed unrecognisably and a socialite, investor, and daughter of the most feared man in the Union, plans to claw her way to the top. By any means necessary. Yet all the while the slums boil over with rage, a rage that all the money in the world cannot control.

Tickets for this event are £3 and can be booked online.
