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 Catacombs by Anne McCaffrey & Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. Matt Staggs posted The Batman Files, and he posted an article about China Mieville taking on DC Comics. That’s not all though. Eric Geller interviewed Star Wars: Darth Plagueis author James Luceno, and I posted The Return of Terry Brooks’ Allanon.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is reading Chapter 2 of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books revealed the cover for Shadow’s Master by Jon Sprunk, and Orbit Books features the cover for Gathering of the Lost by Helen Lowe!
