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 Oath of Fealty by Elizabeth Moon. Final Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction with Robert V.S. Redick! Matt Staggs Took Five with Peter Clines, author of Ex-Patriots. Thalia Sutton featured Greek Myth in Game of Thrones: Part 6, as well as the May 2013 New Manga Releases. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I featured the new novella Grimoire of the Lamb by Kevin Hearne!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com features what Expanded Universe stories would work for Star Wars: Episode VII, Pyr Books posted the 2013 Hugo Award Nominations, and Orbit Books posted an excerpt from The Tyrant’s Law by Daniel Abraham.
