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 Magic for Returners by Kelly Link. Matt Staggs offers copies of Star Wars: A New Dawn signed by John Jackson Miller! And he posted the excellent news that Star Wars: Episode VII will deviate from heavy CGI. Emily Hughes posted a Q&A with Maze Runner author James Dashner. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I shared the cover reveal for The Skull Throne by Peter V. Brett, as well as posted how his new novella, Messenger’s Legacy, came to be!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com has featured a Mercy Thompson Patricia Briggs Sweetpstakes, Pyr Books wants you to check out Joe Abercrombie, and Orbit Books posted the Hugo Award Winners!
