Fantasy writer and film editor Joe Abercrombie joins Elise Italiaander in the Audible Studios to talk about the writing of his 'edgy yet humorous' fantasy novels and the exciting film projects that he's been involved in.
Joe Abercrombie is the best-selling author of the First Law and Shattered Sea series. Here, with his UK editor Natasha Bardon and Shattered Sea narrator Ben Elliot, he talks about his inspirations, writing process, and just how it feels to hand over your characters for someone else to perform. This interview is followed by the first chapter of the first Shattered Sea novel, Half a King.
The Union army may be full of bastards, but there's only one who thinks he can save the day singlehanded when the Gurkish come calling: the incomparable Colonel Sand dan Glokta.

Shevedieh, the self-styled best thief in Styria, lurches from disaster to catastrophe alongside her best friend and greatest enemy, Javre, Lioness of Hoskopp.
