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 Two Fronts by Harry Turtledove. Fictional Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction with Tara Bennett. Sarah Peed posted A Letter From Jason M. Hough. Matt Staggs interviewed David Wellington, author of Chimera, and posted news that Amazon Is Publishing Comic Books Featuring George R. R. Martin & Others. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted an Excerpt: Blood of Tyrants by Naomi Novik!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com continued its re-read of A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books posted the 2013 Chesley Award Nominations, and Orbit Books features their author schedules for the 2013 San Diego Comic Con.
