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 of Magic Kingdom For Sale–Sold! by Terry Brooks. Matt Staggs and Shawn Speakman continued counting down the Best of 2011 in books. That’s not all though. Matt Staggs posted New D&D Books, and Darth Duff posted the cover for Star Wars: X-Wing: Mercy Kill.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Justin Bieber Going Steampunk, Pyr Books posted Pyr’s Best SFF Press for eBooks, and Orbit Books features the cover for Jon Courtenay Grimwood’s The Fallen Blade!
