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 The Sum of Her Parts by Alan Dean Foster. 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 Drew Karpyshyn! Matt Staggs posted Take Five with Erin M. Evans, author of Brimstone Angels: Lesser Evils. And I polled Will You Be Seeing The Hobbit On Opening Night?
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted video celebrating the life of Robert Jordan, Pyr Books featured 5 Questions To Great Story, and Orbit Books is giving away wallpaper for Red Country by Joe Abercrombie!
