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 Railsea by China Mieville. Eric Geller posted Jump Into the Expanded Universe with X-Wing: Wraith Squadron! Matt Staggs posted Ask Atticus: Haunted House Hassles. And I posted the Michael Whelan Cover for A Memory of Light!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted an excerpt for Existence by David Brin, Pyr Books featured The Locus Awards, and Orbit Books posted the UK cover for Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks!
