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 Fevre Dream by George R. R. Martin. Elio Garcia, Jr. reviewed Game of Thrones: Garden of Bones. Fictional Frontiers posted 15 Minutes: Naomi Novik! Matt Staggs featured The Last Werewolf by Glen Duncan. And I posted information about the Clarion Writers Workshop!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted The Devil Delivered & Other Tales by Steven Erikson, Pyr Books featured The Prometheus Award Nominees, and Orbit Books posted information about Brent Weeks and The Night Angel Trilogy!
