Unbound Worlds Likes: 10/5/13


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 Old Mars by George R. R. Martin & Gardner Dozois. Thalia Sutton posts a spoiler-free review of The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. David Moench let’s you all know that Del Rey/Hydra are accepting book pitches for new work at the New York Comic Con! Matt Staggs Takes Five with Emma Jane Holloway, author of A Study In Silks! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I interviewed Paul S. Kemp, author of The Godborn, as well as asked a movie question poll, What 2013 Movie Are You Most Looking Forward To?!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted a new clip from Thor: The Dark World, Pyr Books posted news of PyrZine, and Orbit Books featured their author October events!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 10/5/13:
