Fantasy Blogosphere: August 30, 2009

A bit of Karen Miller news this week, and reviews featuring Brandon Sanderson and R.A. Salvatore’s most recent novels.  We also found out who will portray the Stark sisters in HBO’s version of George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones.  Last but most certainly not least, Orbit has been putting out some entertaining fantasy industry stats.

The one item I think is missing from the fantasy novel cover chart is “Mysterious Hooded Figure”.  This seems to be overwhelmingly the most recent popular trend in fantasy novel covers.  Maybe I’ll round up a few of the covers and post for proof.  For the record, out of my collection the Darksword trilogy seems to take the cake; each book cover containing swords and glowy magic, and in two cases the sword is glowing with glowy magic.  Pure genius.
