Next Joe Abercrombie book gets a title

Joe Abercrombie has revealed that the title for his next novel will be A Red Country. Or possibly just Red Country. This is the Western-meets-(edgy-yet-humourous)-Fantasy he's been talking about for a while, with the writing going well and a mid-to-late 2012 release date likely.

I'm going to hazard a guess his next book will involve blood, swearing, hard men and women living by their swords and absolutely no hard info on if Logen is alive or not.

A Western with Red in the title? You think along with Bakker, Abercrombie counts McCarthy as an influence?

I think Joe did point out that is only a working title...

The obvious influence of Red Dead Redemption might stop them using this title too.
