Gollancz have been giving away some promo booklets for Joe Abercrombie's forthcoming short story collection, Sharp Ends. This booklet contains a sneak peek at the cover art for the book.
Sharp Ends collects together short stories from the First Law universe, the setting for The Blade Itself, Before They Are Hanged, Last Argument of Kings, Best Served Cold, The Heroes and Red Country. Joe has a full list of the stories here.
The book is also notable for featuring the first complete map of the Circle of the World, the setting for the books. Joe and his publishers resisted putting maps in the original First Law trilogy, but did include them in the subsequent volumes. However, these were only maps of the immediate area where the action in those books is taking place. This is the first map showing the grander picture of what's going on.
Sharp Ends will be released in April 2016.
