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 Superman by Larry Tye. Sarah Peed posted a letter from Chelsea Monroe Cassel and A Feast of Ice & Fire. Matt Staggs posted news that Brandon Sanderson Has Written a New YA Book. And I showcased how you can Win an ARC of Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted the winners of the 2012 Locus Award, Pyr Books showcased Clay & Susan Griffith on USAToday, and Orbit Books posted about Existence by David Brin!
