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 Bearers of the Black Staff by Terry Brooks and authors Danielle Bennett & Jaida Jones talk about the majesty of dragons in fantasy! That’s not all though. Matt Staggs interviewed Max Barry, author of Machine Man, and I posted the Poll: Have You Ever Handwritten a Letter to an Author!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted news about Ridley Scott and Blade Runner, Pyr Books posted Two Nice Reviews, and Orbit Books features the cover for The Kingdom of Gods by N. K. Jemisin!
