Interview with Joe Abercrombie – The S&L Podcast #56

Photo by Lou AbercrombieWe have the pleasure of talking with Joe Abercrombie, author of The First Law trilogy and his most recent book, set in the same world, The Heroes. We also delve into the darker nature of fantasy these days, how that thieving leech Tolkien stole all of Joe’s ideas and then time traveled backwards to make them look like his own, and we take some questions from Twitter.
