Unbound Worlds Likes: 3/22/14


bear-wardogsThe 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 Full-Blood, Half-Breed by Cleve Lamison. Author Anne Leonard wrote a guest post On Dragonlore. The Unbound Worlds Cage Match continued with Round 2! Matt Staggs posted about George R. R. Martin’s contingency plans if HBO catches up to his published works! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted a new Tyrion chapter from The Winds of Winter, as well as polled people with what format of books they liked to read—short stories, stand alone novels, trilogies, or multi-volume series?

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com reviewed Game of Thrones: Season 4 Episode 1, Pyr Books turned 9 Years Old, and Orbit Books Glenda Larke, author of The Lascar’s Dagger!

Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Unbound Worlds week ending 3/22/14:
