Wouldn't put him in the same tier as Martin, Erikson or Hobb, but he's still a fantasy gem for us Brits.
I wouldn't really compare them. Those writers are all about the sweeping epics that reach the many thousands of pages, whereas Abercrombie is a bit of a throw back to the likes of Gemmel, in that while the stories are linked, you could pick one up and enjoy it as a stand alone, rather than having to immerse yourself in a series that will consume years of your life. That is where the big void is in fantasy fiction since Gemmell's death. Everything is at least a trilogy nowadays.
