Unbound Worlds Likes: 11/9/13


poster-hobbitdesolationThe 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 Hyperion by Dan Simmons. Logan Balestrino continues his re-read of Fellowship of the Ring. Matt Staggs posted major Marvel / Netflix news, and he posted George R. R. Martin’s favorite 2013 books! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted the final trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Barnes & Noble’s November book picks, Pyr Books posted news about Ari Marmell, and Orbit Books posted their online author gathering!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 11/9/13:

  • Cover: Lock In by John Scalzi, posted by A Dribble of Ink
  • Comment: 2013 Goodreads Choice Awards, posted by A Fantasy Reader
  • Interview: Rachel Bach, conducted by Fantasy Book Critic
  • Review: 1602 by Neil Gaiman, read by Fantasy Literature
  • Interview: James S.A. Corey, posted by Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist
  • Movie Review: Thor: The Dark World, posted by Sci-Fi Chick
  • Charity: Worldbuilders with Pat Rothfuss, posted by SF Signal
  • Comment: Rothfuss & Lynch UK Signing, posted by Wertzone

I highly recommend all Unbound Worlds readers to visit these fine examples of sci-fi / fantasy blog work! Get involved, post your thoughts, and enjoy what else is out there!
