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 Year Zero by Rob Reid. Fictional Frontiers taped 15 Minutes of Fiction with China Mieville. Matt Staggs Took Five with Sarah Zettel, and posted Making Magic Magical. And I interviewed Stacia Kane, author of Chasing Magic, as well as posted the steps in Creating a Fantasy Map!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted Todd Lockwood’s Anatomical Study of a Dragon, Pyr Books featured the 2012 Sunburst Award Nominees, and Orbit Books published Caliban’s War by James SA Corey!
