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 featured the First 50 Pages of Hitman: Damnation by Raymond Benson. Author Rob Reid posted From the Desk of Rob Reid concerning his new novel, Year Zero. Matt Staggs left for the 2012 San Diego Comic Con and video interviewed Kevin Hearne, Shawntelle Madison, Daniel H. Wilson, Peter F. Hamilton, Christopher Paolini, Rob Reid, Harry Turtledove, Rachel Hartman, Chip Kidd, Brandon Sanderson / Christopher Paolini / Robin Hobb, and Scott Sigler. I stayed home this year and posted The Top 5 2012 Comic Con Exclusives, as well as posted an Interview Between Terry Brooks and Patrick Rothfuss!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Chapter One from A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson, Pyr Books featured the 2012 Sunburst Award Nominees, and Orbit Books published more information about Red Country by Joe Abercrombie!
