The spotlight is shared by Pat Rothfuss and George Martin this week, the former garnering publicity following his recent release of The Wise Man’s Fear, and the latter on the forthcoming release of his HBO tv series. In addition to the barrage of coverage on these great authors, there are reviews of books by great authors that crossed this week: Glen Cook, Peter S. Beagle and Daniel Abraham.
