Unbound Worlds Likes: 10/19/13


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 A Kiss the Night Goodbye by Keri Arthur. Thalia Sutton posted a Wrap Up of the New York Comic Con. Matt Staggs featured the 10th Anniversary Edition of Eragon by Christopher Paolini, as well as talked about the movie Gravity! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted a poll, Do You Read Excerpts? as well as featured a video of Brandon Sanderson talking about his new book, Steelheart !

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted about tweaking the fairy tale with The High King, Pyr Books posted news of PyrZine, and Orbit Books talk about Women in SF!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 10/19/13:
