A lazy Labor Day weekend, and the fantasy blogosphere is equally as calm. Chalk up a couple of reviews, a pair of reviews with Lev Grossman, and The Guild ladies at DragonCon to the weekend that kicks off college football. Also, I knew (or hoped!) it was coming: old school Choose Your Own Adventure-style books making the transition to the digital world. Boo-yaa.
The Game of Thrones HBO series buzz continues to build, with a new poster, a new artisans video and an interactive audio experience all hitting this week. Reviews of The Heroes and The Runestaff, and interviews with Mark Charan Newton, Michael Stackpole, Peter V. Brett and Cherie Priest. Stephen King announces a new Dark Tower book to come next year, and fantasy as a genre is continuing to grow.
Reviews of A Game of Thrones, Gauntlgrym and The Strange Affair of Spring Heeled Jack this week, along with interviews of Mercedes Lackey, Cherie Priest and Mark Charan Newton. Check out the best moments from Red Dwarf, the passing of Brian Jacques, and Joe Abercrombie appearing in TIME magazine.
The fantasy blogosphere onslaught continues this week, with reviews of books new and old alike, from The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin to A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin. Interviews with Brandon Sanderson and Ursula K. Le Guin crossed this week, and we see releases from top authors Tad Williams, Joe Abercrombie and more. More buildup for the Game of Thrones HBO series with a spotlight at the L.A. Times and a new “artisans” video hitting the web. Even further GRRM news with Bantam purchasing the comic book rights for A Song of Ice and Fire, and cap the week off with a trailer for the new Lord of the Rings video game!
Let the fantasy onslaught begin! Everyone seems to have finally returned from their New Year’s hangover/vacation, because the fantasy blogosphere was hectic this past week, to say the least. Kick it off with reviews of the most recent novels by Joe Abercrombie, Jim Butcher and Steven Erikson, skip on over to interviews with George R.R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie and James Enge, and round out the week with news about the Dark Tower tv series, D&D appearing on tv, and Orbit acquiring three new Dresden novels.
A fairly calm week, as you would assume with the Thanksgiving holiday. Even with our bellies stuffed with turkey, a batch of interviews crossed the fantasy blogosphere, including chats with Brandon Sanderson, Michael Moorcock, Terry Brooks and others. Check out the Game of Thrones photos – I’m starting to get really excited. Although, I always pictured Tyrion with a roundish head; but hey, you can’t have everything, right?
A fantastic group of reviews this week, including Shadowmarch, Leviathan, and Nightchild, as well as interviews with Brandon Sanderson, Mercedes Lackey, and more. News on Peter V. Brett’s future novels, as well as a first look at the Game of Thrones HBO series. Cap it all off with a ridiculously awesome map of Westeros, and a trailer for a movie that could potentially rank as my favorite movie of all time.
Great interviews this week, including Tad Williams, Jasper Kent, Brent Weeks, Lev Grossman, Scott Westerfield and Peter V. Brett. We’ve also found a few creat reviews, including a review of Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson, The Painted Man by Peter V. Brett, and more. Ever get frustrated when books don’t clearly indicate the order they’re published in or the series number on the cover? Check out FictFact. And as always, Guildy hilarity!
