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 Star Wars: Razor’s Edge by Martha Wells. Darth Duff posted a cool transcript with talented voice actor James Arnold Taylor. Logan Balestrino continued his Fellowship of the Ring re-read. Fictional Frontiers featured 15 Minutes of Fiction with Mark Miller. Matt Staggs Took Five with Joe McKinney, author of The Savage Dead! Matt also posted the sad news that author A.C. Crispin has passed away after a battle with cancer. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted the first five chapters from Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com continued a re-read of A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books posted their DragonCon pictures, and Orbit Books posted the question, “Who would you cast in an Expanse television series?”
