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 Horror Stories of Robert E. Howard by Robert E. Howard. Logan Balestrino continued The Hobbit Re-Read. Fictional Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction… with Larry Curtis. Sarah Peed posted The Iron Pet Contest. Matt Staggs posted Take Five with Richard Gropp, author of Bad Glass. And I posted a video, Terry Brooks Talks Unfettered!
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 James Enge Marches Through the Black Gate, and Orbit Books published Out For Blood by Kristen Painter!
