Unbound Worlds Likes: 10/26/13


brown-redrisingThe 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 Eat the Dark by Joe Schreiber. Logan Balestrino continued his Re-Read of Fellowship of the Ring. Matt Staggs tells readers to GET READY for Red Rising by Pierce Brown, as well as featured Eight Brain Monsters From Outer Space & Beyond! Mike Braff talks about Epic Fantasy Tropes. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted the cover for The Darkling Child by Terry Brooks!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Pyr Books posted news of Pyr-a-zine, and Orbit Books offers signed bookplates for Parasite by Mira Grant!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 10/26/13:
