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 Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb. Thalia Sutton posted the November 2013 New Manga Releases. Sarah Peed posted New This Month from Del Rey Spectra. Matt Staggs posted news of a new Neil Gaiman Sandman comic book! Mike Braff talks about Epic Fantasy Tropes. Eric Geller featured the newest Star Wars HoloNet Digest. And I posted an interview with Christopher Paolini, author of Eragon!
In other areas of the professional internet(s), Tor.com posted an excerpt from The Language of Dying by Sarah Pinborough, Pyr Books posted news of Pyr-a-zine, and Orbit Books posted their November Events!
Here are some of the blogging highlights I found outside of Suvudu week ending 11/2/13:
