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 Star Wars: Mercy Kill by Aaron Allston. Sarah Peed posted New This Month from Del Rey/Spectra: August. Matt Staggs featured Beneath a Rising Moon by Keri Arthur, as well as showcased a Rich Guy Who Apparently Never Saw Jurassic Park. And I posted Chapter Two: Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks, as well as shared thoughts from a dozen bestselling fantasy authors in To Be A Fantasy Beta Reader!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com continued to read A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books asks Why do epic fantasies always take place in monarchies?, and Orbit Books features Patrick Rothfuss and Terry Brooks interviewing one another!
