Joe Abercrombie punctuation
Well, I'm currently reading The Heroes and so far it's good. Awesomely good.
I'm just interested that (so far) I haven't found a single colon, semi-colon or dash. Just full stops and commas.
It works really well, actually. As far as I can see he just works his commas quite hard in places, which I'm fine with, and whenever another author might have opted for colon or dash he just goes with a full stop.
For me this is a more extreme version of the sort of writing I like. For example, I'm really not keen when authors over-use dashes, regularly inserting clauses between dashes.
What do people think?
