Does anyone know if Joe Abercrombie's books will be released in the mass market (small)paperback size? So far the only one i have found and purchased was Best Served Cold I didn't see anything on Barnes & Noble.

Abercrombie is a relatively new fantasy writer of some merit, though his biography doesn't include any D&D or FR titles. I remember reading one of his books (his pen name is unusual), but I can't actually recall which book or very much about it, suggesting to me that it was much less memorable than other books I was reading at the time. It must've been at least average or I would've tossed it.

Wikipedia states "In 2011, Abercrombie signed a deal with Gollancz for 4 more books...". Gollancz is a (smallish) British publisher, but their books are often available in Canada and the USA through Barnes & Noble and other distributors. All these companies also sell through Amazon. It's anyone guess what print size these new books will be, although since they're intended to continue a series they're likely to retain the same form factor as the first book.

Search appears to indicate nothing at all for the Realms.

"Small beings can have small wisdom," the dragon said. "And small wise beings are better than small fools. Listen: Wisdom is caring for afterwards."
"Caring for afterwards ...? Ker repeated this without understanding.
"After action, afterwards," the dragon said. "Choose the afterwards first, then the action. Fools choose action first."

I'm sure some of them have already been released in paperback.

I do recall the Lady K possessing a mass market paperback of The Blade Itself.
