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 The Wanderers by Paula Brandon. Author Rachel Hartman posted The Top 10 Songs of Seraphina. Matt Staggs interviewed Darksiders: The Abomination Vault author Ari Marmell, as well as Took Five With Ben H. Winters, author of The Last Policeman. Thalia Sutton posted the July 2012 Manga New Releases. And I featured Two Urban Fantasy Novels I Can’t Wait For and polled Should The Hobbit Have Three Movies?!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted an excerpt from Forge of Darkness by Steven Erikson, Pyr Books featured the cover for A Guile of Dragons by James Enge, and Orbit Books featured the cover for Stray Souls by Kate Griffin!
