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 The Ruined City by Paula Brandon. Matt Staggs is reading along with the Kiss Me, I’m Irish Read-a-Along for Hounded by Kevin Hearne, and Aidan Moher posted Is This Halo 4’s Master Chief? That’s not all though. Danielle Rollins posted a guest post with Regina McBridge, author of The Fire Opal, and I posted New Release Interview: The Nightmare Garden by Caitlin Kittredge.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is reading Chapter 7 of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books revealed a short story A Trial of Blood and Steel, and Orbit Books announced the release date for Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson!
