Fantasy Blogosphere: March 7, 2010

Four reviews kick off our fantasy blogosphere roundup this week, with reviews of books by Tad Williams, Joe Abercrombie, Ian C. Esslemont and Seressia Glass.  Following this is the fantastic news that HBO has approved A Game of Thrones, so we’ll be seeing something more than a static image soon. A few covers were released this week, for Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings, and Brent Weeks’ The Black Prism. Check out the interview with Brandon for his comments on his new series. I’m not sure I’m into the new photo realistic cover as exhibited on Weeks’ novel; we’ll have to keep an eye on this and see if it becomes a trend. And last but not least, some sort of explanation as to why Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter made the Amazon top 5 yesterday.

Amazon’s Top 5 Fantasy Bestsellers, March 6, 2010

Dead Witch Walking, Dead in the Family and Breaking Dawn hold strong this week, confirming that this vampire in fantasy trend isn’t going away any time soon. And the two newcomers to Amazon’s top 5 fantasy bestseller list this week are…Battle of the Network Zombies, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? I think I just threw up a bit in my mouth. At least when I scrolled down past the top 5, I was reassured that Jim Butcher’s latest novel as well as Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name of the Wind are both still selling well, giving me some reassurance that not all hope is lost.

  1. Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison
  2. Battle of the Network Zombies by Mark Henry
  3. Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris
  4. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
  5. Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer
