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 Dime Store Magic by Kelley Armstrong. Logan Balestrino continued The Hobbit Re-Read. Matt Staggs highlighted Contest: The Daylight War by Peter V. Brett. And I wrote a letter to Hollywood and polled Do You Like the New Hobbit Trailer?!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com continued its re-read of A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books posted A Blueprint for the Future of Genre Fiction, and Orbit Books published Gods of Risk by James S.A. Corey!
