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 the First 50 Pages from Star Wars: Riptide by Paul S. Kemp. We also posted the covers featured at the NYCC Star Wars Panel! That’s not all though. Matt Staggs interviewed Taylor Stevens, author of The Informationist. I interviewed Lia Habel, author of Dearly, Departed, and I also asked What Movie Contains Your Favorite Darth Vader Scene?
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com features video of Margaret Atwood and Lev Grossman, Pyr Books posted a review of Fenrir by M. D. Lachlan, and Orbit Books announced their new editor!
