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, Suvudu posted the First 50 Pages of Crysis: Legion by Peter Watts, Chris Wooding continued The Logbook of the Ketty Jay, Random House announced the release date and cover for Inheritance by Christopher Paolini, Anne Groell posted an interview and giveaway with Elizabeth Bear for her new book Grail, and the 2011 Suvudu Cage Match rolled on, only a few characters left standing!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted about the Game of Thrones food trucks in LA and NYC, Pyr Books posted their Hugo 2010 Books For Your Consideration, and Orbit Books features Helen Lowe blogging about her Top Three Fantasy Settings!
