Galaktacus challenges the Maker and all of the Maker's apprentices when we examine Joe Abercrombie's wonderful fantasy fiction, from the epic-deconstructing First Law Trilogy, to the genre-bending followup novels, and the heart-breaking YA Shattered Sea series. Are we talking about a fan-favorite but not-yet mainstream fantasy author? You bet we are! Do you care? You will when you listen to the new episode of Galaktacus! You have to be realistic about these things.
