Store Bits: New Scott Lynch, Abercrombie, Sanderson, a Bukowski tribute and live broom painting

Gentlemen Bastards fans!  Our Tiemen, ABC Amsterdam’s SF/Fantasy buyer, has arranged a lovely sneak peek for you, in collaboration with the fine folks at Random House USA.  *drum roll* We are happy to present you with the first chapter of the long-awaited third volume of Scott Lynch’s fantastic series, The Republic of Thieves, due out next month.    Click on the link below, and then on the little document picture (your blogmistress doesn’t know how to get it to you any more smoothly than that, sorry!  :-))  Happy advance reading…

Chapter 1 of The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

ABC The Hague’s SF/Fantasy buyer JeroenW is no slouch, either.  He reports news of new novels by Joe Abercrombie, writer of the very popular First Law Trilogy.  That’s not all, though – he’s found an online graphic novel of the First Law Trilogy, too.  New pages are uploaded every Mon-Wed-Fri.  (Image credit: First Law trilogy comic panel: artist Andie Tong, colorist Peter Pantazis, panel taken from firstlawcomic.com.)

JeroenW also found an excerpt of Brandon Sanderson‘s latest, Steelheart, in case, for some strange reason, you haven’t rushed out to buy it yet and want to test the waters, as it were.  Aren’t our SF/Fantasy buyers fabulous?  🙂
