This week we’ve got a review of one of my favorite fantasy reads so far this year: Lamentation by Ken Scholes. Also check out the interview with Jim Butcher over at SciFiNow. A classic Frazetta sold for 1.5 million over the past week, and Tor made the cover art of Brandon Sanderson’s A Way of Kings available as desktop wallpapers, so grab ’em while they’re hot!

A great bunch of reviews this week, from Grave Peril by Jim Butcher to Nights of Villjamur by Mark Charan Newton. We’re also seeing more authors get into the habit of not only running their own blog, but creating guest posts on other blogs, as Mark Charan Newton has done with Amazon.com’s Omnivoracious blog.
