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 featured the First 50 Pages of Superman by Larry Tye. Matt Staggs posted plans for alien contact, and posted information about Beyond the Wall, the Song of Ice & Fire book. And I featured the cover and summary for the forthcoming ebook short story, Allanon’s Quest by Terry Brooks, as well as interviewed Todd Lockwood about Tales of the Emerald Serpent!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted an excerpt for Dark Companion by Marta Acosta, Pyr Books featured the 2012 Chesley Award Finalists, and Orbit Books posted a book trailer for David Brin’s Existence!
