BEFORE THEY ARE HANGED.
[Burton, MI]: Subterranean Press, 2011. Octavo, cloth. Limited edition. One of 500 numbered copies signed by Abercrombie. The author's second novel and the second book of "The First Law" trilogy. From a Guardian interview with the author 17 September, 2019: "...following the adventures of torturer Inquisitor Glokta, barbarian warrior Logen Ninefingers, and the dashing but vain swordsman Jezal dan Luthar. Gritty, violent, cynical and redolent with dark humour, “it was my take on Lord of the Rings, but bringing in all my weird preoccupations about how people work, the nature of violence. It’s a reaction against the shiny and optimistic heroic fantasy I read as a teenager. In trying to do the opposite, it becomes quite pessimistic and grim.”. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (Note: Heavy volume, extra postage may apply). (26920). Item #26920
