Unbound Worlds Likes: 6/28/14


hobb-foolsassassinThe 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 Half a King by Joe Abercrombie. Matt Staggs delves into the history of Odd Thomas‘s bodach creature, as well as featuring an analysis of rumors regarding Harrison Ford’s leg injury! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I shared event video featuring author Kevin Hearne at his Seattle, WA event promoting Shattered, as well featured some Free Reading from Terry Brooks.

In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com announced the 2014 Locus Award winners, Pyr Books wants you to check out Joe Abercrombie, and Orbit Books forced Kevin Hearne to answer questions about his new book, Shattered!
