There are some great sci-fi/fantasy bloggers out there, fans who are devoting a lot of time and energy into supporting authors and their readers. Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and with the menagerie of unique and very different individuals out there contributing, it produces a whole that is better than its parts.
Last week, Unbound Worlds posted an interview with Hellbent‘s Cherie Priest, and we asked you to Cast Star Wars: Heir to the Empire! That’s not all though. Matt Staggs interviewed Ilsa Bick, author of Ashes, and I posted event video with The Black Prism‘s Brent Weeks!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted its impression of 2011 DragonCon, Pyr Books posted its DragonCon Schedule, and Orbit Books features the cover for Silver Tongued Devil by Jaye Wells!
