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 an First 50 Pages of Trapped by Kevin Hearne. Matt Staggs and I really ramped up our Gifts For the Geek holiday posts with some great gift ideas for the geek in your life! Fictional Frontiers posted 15 Minutes of Fiction… with James Berardinelli! Matt Staggs posted Star Wars: Episode VII News. And I videotaped bestselling author Jim Butcher at his Seattle event for the release of Cold Days, the new Dresden Files book!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com began featuring more content for the release of Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson, Pyr Books featured 5 Questions To Great Story, and Orbit Books interviewed Iain Banks!
