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 Star Wars: Apocalypse by Troy Denning. Matt Staggs interviewed Ted Kosmatka about The Games. Aidan Moher posted Screens from Darksiders II. That’s not all though. Joe Scalora and David Pomerico posted their winners voted by you for Round 1 of the 2012 Cage Match, and I reviewed Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is reading Part 10 of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books featured Functional Nerds, and Orbit Books R. Scott Bakker deconstructs Epic Fantasy!
