Gifts for the Geek: Day 3: Justin Cronin’s The Twelve


Gifts for the Geek: Day 3: Justin Cronin’s The Twelve

It’s day two of our annual Suvudu gift guide, and well, I’m going to cheat on this one by suggesting that you buy two books: Justin Cronin’s The Passage and its sequel, The Twelve.

The Twelve by Justin CroninThere 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.

Here is a list of what other bloggers on the internet(s) did in the last week—reviews, interviews, comments, giveaways, and the like.

Justin Cronin’s ‘The Twelve’: Two Worlds and In Between


Justin Cronin’s ‘The Twelve’: Two Worlds and In Between

We’re a week out from the release of Justin Cronin’s The Twelve, the sequel to his break-out apocalyptic horror novel The Passage. I can’t wait. I have to admit that The Passage took a little while to grown on me, but once it did, it fully colonized my entire system like a virus. I was [...]

Our 2012 Best Bets: Justin Cronin’s ‘The Twelve’

Our look at what should be some of next year’s best books continues with Justin Cronin’s The Twelve.

“The Passage” Makes IO9’s List of Ten Works of SF That Are Really Fantasy

Our friends at IO9 published a fascinating article examining works of science fiction that are actually fantasy. I’m pleased to see several of my own personal favorites (Vance’s Dying Earth? H.P.

Terry Reviews: The Passage

The Passage, The Strain and Dracula: How Do They Compare?


The Passage, The Strain and Dracula: How Do They Compare?

With Justin Cronin’s The Passage newly released and burning up the sales charts, and Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain recently released in mass market paperback, I thought I’d take a moment to do a little comparison between both of them. They’re both vampire epics, the first books in trilogies and feature civilization’s [...]
