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 Echoes of Betrayal by Elizabeth Moon. Matt Staggs interviewed Design In Nature’s author Adrian Bejan, and Aidan Moher posted first details about Mass Effect: Infiltrator. That’s not all though. I posted news about Multiverse, the forthcoming Poul Anderson-inspired anthology, and I polled Which BEFORE WATCHMEN Titles Will You Buy?
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com is reading Chapter 6 of A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin, Pyr Books revealed a book giveaway, and Orbit Books posted a podcast interview with Brent Weeks!
