Unbound Worlds Likes: 7/27/13


lynch-republicThe 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 The Darwin Elevatore by Jason M. Hough. Fictional Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction with Jeff Parker. Matt Staggs attended the 2013 San Diego Comic Con where he interviewed numerous authors also in attendance—click HERE to see the full list! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted asked the question Poll: Would You Accepted Joseph Gordon-Levitt As Batman?!

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.

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 7/27/13:
