George R.R. Martin reviews flood the blogosphere this week, with reviews of books 2-5 in A Song of Ice and Fire crossing your internets. Shadowplay, Prince of Thorns and Perfect Shadow are also reviewed, and we round out the week with a bases-loaded interview pack: GRRM, 2 (yep, two!) interviews with Felicia Day, and a chat with Jim Butcher. Righteous!

Fantasy Blogosphere: July 25, 2011

If you’re lucky enough to be inside with air conditioning right now, you’ll likely have more time than usual to browse the interwebs. Luckily, the fantasy blogosphere is chock full of goodies this week, with reviews of books by Tad Williams, Mark Charan Newton and Glen Cook, and interviews with Mark Lawrence, Ellen Kushner and David Anthony Durham. A few big fantasy film happenings: Harry Potter concludes and io9 looks at potential fantasy series to replace it, and The Dark Tower gets cancelled. Bring on the Dragonlance feature film!!

Fantasy Blogosphere: July 18, 2011

In case you haven’t been watching our Amazon’s top 5 fantasy books over the past few months, USA Today has summarized nicely: Record sales for George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons. It shows, as A Dance with Dragons is being reviewed in more mainstream publications, and the author himself is popping up to discuss the novel all over the interwebs. If you squint enough, you may be able to see the reviews of books by Ari Marmell, N.K. Jemisin, Steven Erikson and Brent Weeks amid the Dance maelstrom. Tack on a pair of interviews with Lev Grossman and Tracy Hickman, and I’d say this week will leave you with a belly full of fantasy.

Fantasy Blogosphere: July 11, 2011

A Dance with Dragons teeters on the brink of release, and the fantasy blogosphere is flooding with reviews now that the embargo on reviews is lifted. Also this week, we found reviews of books by authors Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson, Adrian Tchaikovsky and R. Scott Bakker, as well as an interview with Lev Grossman. Some cool fantasy art appeared this week as well, with the cover for the Game of Thrones dropping, and a really cool new map of Westeros. Photos from The Hobbit movie are starting to cross the blogosphere as well. Enough to get excited about yet?
