What’s better than hearing your favorite writer geek out about writerly stuff? Hearing ME geek out about writerly stuff. What’s better than that? An epic MMA (mixed mental arts) cage match between Joe Abercrombie
in the lily white trunks, weighing in at ten stone, and Brent Weeks in the sunburnt red trunks, weighing in at oh-my-goodness. (Okay, so I don’t even know how much ten stone is. Quirky Brits, pounds and kilos not enough for you?)
Borders Books has recently launched its new blog on all things SFF over HERE. They’ve already had some real stars show up for two-week stints each, including Brandon Sanderson, China Mieville, Kim Harrison, and Robert Sawyer. Now they want me and Joe. Joe I can understand, I mean, LOOK at him. Step aside, Daniel Craig. I think I’ve been signed up to be a red shirt. Or maybe the Washington Generals. But I’ll be doing my best to be Apollo Creed instead. He won in that first movie, you know. Anyway, Joe and I will be duking it out from July 21st to August 1st, so please drop by with your snide comments, piercing questions, and adoration.
And if he humiliates me, well, Apollo Creed is supposed to make Rocky look good. (Just don’t go all Ivan Drago on me, Joe.)
