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 Master of Heathcrest Hall by Galen Beckett. Matt Staggs Took Five with Tim Pratt. Aidan Moher posted Posted the Release Date For Diablo III. That’s not all though. Joe Scalora and David Pomerico posted their winners voted by you for Round 2 of the 2012 Cage Match, and I posted the cover for Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks.
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is reading Part 11 of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books featured Functional Nerds, and Orbit Books posts two new short stories!
