Unbound Worlds Likes: 10/12/13


novik-bloodThe 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 A Study in Darkness by Emma Jane Holloway. Abigail Garner posted about the Unbound Worlds Universe Community Spotlight. Matt Staggs video interviewed author Scott Lynch at the NYCC, as well as video interviewed author John Jackson Miller at the NYCC! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I did a short interview with Robin Hobb after she announced that she would be returning to the world of Fitz & Fool, as well as interviewed James Dashner (The Eye of Minds) and Scott Lynch (The Republic of Thieves)!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted new information about Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Pyr Books posted news of PyrZine, and Orbit Books featured author David Dalglish!
