Unbound Worlds Likes: 8/24/13


williams-happyThe 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 Exodus Towers by Jason M. Hough. Logan Balestrino continued Tolkien Re-Read: The Fellowship of the Ring. Matt Staggs Interviewed Claude Lalumiere, editor of Super Stories of Heroes and Villains! Matt also pondered The Virtues of Obi-Wan Kenobi! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted the cover for The High Druid’s Blade by Terry Brooks, and posted the Poll: Dragons? Smart or Feral?!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com ask if Affleck is good for Batman, Pyr Books posted the 2013 Chesley Award Nominations, and Orbit Books posted the cover for The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks.

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 8/24/13:

  • Guest Blog: Bradley P. Beaulieu, posted by A Dribble of Ink
  • Review: Black Bottle by Anthony Huso, posted by A Fantasy Reader
