Abercrombie's The Heroes UK cover

Monday, July 12, 2010

Joe revealed today the UK cover for his upcoming stand alone novel set in the northern part of the same world as his previous novels. I like it a lot, as beautiful as Best Served Cold. Vive the maps!

As for the credit for this piece of work, the author goes with this :
As with Best Served Cold, it’s a collaborative effort. The map is by Dave Senior from my original scrawl. The axe is by Didier Graffet. The design is by Laura Brett.
Here's the blurb again (the book will be released on January 20th 2011) and the US cover art :

War: where the blood and dirt of the battlefield hide the dark deeds committed in the name of glory. THE HEROES is about violence and ambition, gruesome deaths and betrayals; and the brutal truth that no plan survives contact with enemy. The characters are the stars, as ever, and the message is dark: when it comes to war, there are no heroes…


Curnden Craw: a ruthless fighter who wants nothing more than to see his crew survive.

Prince Calder: a liar and a coward, he will regain his crown by any means necessary.

Bremer dan Gorst: a master swordsman, a failed bodyguard, his honor will be restored—in the blood of his enemies.

Over three days, their fates will be sealed.

You know what, I think I like the UK cover here. And a little more than the US cover. I like them both though. Thanks!

Can't wait either.

Since I'm in Canada and I usually have an easy opportunity to buy the UK editions first, the UK cover will be sitting on my shelves as soon as it's available! :)
