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 from The Steel Remains by Richard K. Morgan. We also posted an exclusive excerpt for Star Wars: Riptide by Paul S. Kemp! That’s not all though. Matt Staggs featured Take Five with Peter F. Hamilton, author of The Evolutionary Void. I posted a release day interview with David Anthony Durham, author of The Sacred Band, and asked What Authors Comprise Your Dream Anthology?
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com reviewed Down These Strange Streets edited by George R. R. Martin & Gardner Dozois, Pyr Books posted a review of Fenrir by M. D. Lachlan, and Orbit Books featured the eBook only launch The Hedgewitch Queen by Lilith Saintcrow!
