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 Scar Night by Alan Campbell. Matt Staggs and Shawn Speakman began counting down the Best of 2011 in books. That’s not all though. Matt Staggs posted a rumor that HBO is about to order two more seasons of Game of Thrones. I also posted an interview with Mark Lawrence, author of Prince of Thorns.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted an interview with Steven Erikson, Pyr Books posted a photo of a custom made Ghost, and Orbit Books features Felicia Day’s review of Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey!
