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. Sarah Peed highlights New This Month From Del Rey / Spectra. Matt Staggs Interviewed Lincoln Child, author of The Third Gate, and posted Five Amazing Cases of Reincarnation. And I posted Chapter One from Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks, as well as posted information how to Record Your Fan Fiction at Comic Con!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted information about John Scalzi’s The Human Division, Pyr Books featured the 2012 Sunburst Award Nominees, and Orbit Books published the cover for Taken by Benedict Jacka!
