The value of Grit by Joe Abercrombie

For those who don’t know Joe Abercrombie well let me say this to you; in what world are you living in? I’m addressing this question to the fans of George R.R Martin in particular, because if you’re a fan of him, you should know the work of Joe Abercrombie and Daniel Abraham. Our dear mister Abercrombie is the author of the excellent The First Law series and more recently Red Country. You could say he’s the illegitimate child of the author of the A Song of Fire and Ice series as a writer, why do I say that? Because he specialize in gritty, violent and raw stories, a style he defend with great passion in this great article he posted a few days ago.
What are your thoughts on gritty fantasy? Are you annoyed, hate it or are you one of those people who wish there was no other way of writing fantasy?
