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 Blades of Winter by G. T. Almasi. Logan Balestrino began The Tolkien Re-Read. Matt Staggs posted Who Won Ernest Cline’s Delorean, as well as Took Five with Suzanne Brockmann. And Time Magazine’s book critic Lev Grossman Interviewed Terry Brooks!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com talks Hollywood dropping Stephen King’s Dark Tower, Pyr Books posted their Dragon Con Signing Schedule, and Orbit Books posted 5 Reasons to read Wards of Faerie by Terry Brooks!
Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Suvudu week ending 8/25/12:
