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 The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch. Thalia Sutton posted the October 2013 New Manga Releases. Matt Staggs featured Old Mars, an new anthology edited by George R. R. Martin & Gardner Dozois! Matt also wrote the hilarious Kitty-Clorians and the Power of the Bark Side! Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I interviewed Peter V. Brett, author of The Daylight War, as well as interviewed Brandon Sanderson, author of Steelheart!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com discusses Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson, Pyr Books posted their DragonCon pictures, and Orbit Books an interview with Elliott James, author of Charming!
