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 Luck in the Shadows by Lynn Flewelling. Elio Garcia, Jr. posted Review of Game of Thrones: The Prince of Winterfell! Aidan Moher posted Diablo 3 Is the Fastest Selling PC Game of All Time. Matt Staggs posted Five Picks For Fantastic Beach Reads. And I polled Have You Incorporated Characters Into Your Personality?!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Part 20 of reading A Clash of Kings, Pyr Books featured The Locus Awards, and Orbit Books features the cover for The Heretic Land by Tim Lebbon!
