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 Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks. Final Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction with Rick Yancey! Matt Staggs interviewed Christa Faust, author of Fringe: The Zodiac Paradox. Thalia Sutton featured Greek Myth in Game of Thrones: Part 7. Sarah Peed posted A Letter from Kevin Hearne. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I interviewed Laura Andersen, author of The Boleyn King!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is conducting a read of A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books posted the 2013 Hugo Award Nominations, and Orbit Books features the 2012 Nebula Award for Best Novel, 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson.
