Unbound Worlds Likes: 12/7/13


brooks-elfstonesThe 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 Ashes by Emma Jane Holloway. Sarah Peed posted New This Month from Del Rey Spectra. Matt Staggs considers Star Wars: Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn, as well as shared that author Scott Sigler will be conducting a live chat for his new novel, Pandemic! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted the exciting news that MTV has optioned the Shannara series by Terry Brooks, in hopes of adapting The Elfstones of Shannara!

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Will Terry Brooks’ Shannara Come to a TV Near You, Pyr Books posted a giveaway, and Orbit Books posted the cover for Tower Lord by Anthony Ryan!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 12/7/13:
