Unbound Worlds Likes: 6/29/13


gaiman-oceanThe internet(s) gives and gives and gives.

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 Forever by Jacquelyn Frank. David Moench posted news that Del Rey & Hydra are offering Story & Art Pitch Sessions at Comic Con! Matt Staggs posted the sad news of the passing of Richard Matheson, and posted what a Biophysicist Thinks About World War Z. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted pictures of The Arrival of Unfettered!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted art from their Illustration Master Class, Pyr Books posted the Andre Norton Award Winner, and Orbit Books features an article from Kevin Hearne, author of Hunted.

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 6/29/13:
