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 War That Came Early: Coup d’etat by Harry Turtledove. Fictional Frontiers posted a 15 Minutes of Fiction interview with Amped author Daniel H. Wilson. Matt Staggs continued to post content made at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con with video interviews from Troy Denning and Todd McCaffrey. Thalia Sutton posted the July 2012 Manga New Releases. And I posted The Cover For the Anthology: Unfettered!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted A Read of Ice & Fire: A Clash of Kings Part 27, Pyr Books featured City of Ruins Nominated, and Orbit Books published video of Kim Stanley Robinson reading from 2312!
