Fantasy Blogosphere: March 7, 2011

A Dance with Dragons gets a release date, and The Wise Man’s Fear gets released. I’m not sure what more I could ask for. Well, how about a review of The Wise Man’s Fear, 3 interviews with Patrick Rothfuss, Rothfuss reading from The Wise Man’s Fear, and the first full-length trailer for the Game of Thrones HBO series. Rockin’.

Fantasy Blogosphere: October 31, 2010

A fairly calm week in the fantasy blogosphere, with only one review of note crossing the wire. Naomi Novik swings by The Dragon Page, and R.A. Salvatore chats with Del Rey. Barnes & Noble released a full color, Android-based Nook this week, which will fill the slot between cheaper e-ink readers and the full-featured iPad starting at $500. The new Nook has a great price point, starting under $300 around $250. The Hobbit movie is officially staying in New Zealand, and check out the footage from the lead costume designer for the new HBO Game of Thrones series.

Huge tracts of reviews this week, from The Scarab Path to The Wolf Age to Northlanders and more. i09 has an interview with George R.R. Martin, and Tor talks with Scott Westerfield. The cover for Daniel Abraham’s The Dragon’s Path is released, Andy Remic offers a free eBook, and Dragon Warrior, the first digital RPG I ever played, has a bar? I’ll take 4 slimes please!

Fantasy Blogosphere: September 6, 2010

This week we’ve got reviews of the third book in Ken Sholes five book series (Antiphon), Servant of a Dark God by John Brown, and an audiobook review of Aenarion by Gav Thorpe, among others. Brandon Sanderson kicks off his book tour for The Way of Kings, Daniel Abraham and Terry Pratchett offer interviews, Sandman by Neil Gaiman gets a television series, among other tv news, and of course, two new episodes of The Guild dropped since last week, giving us one of the best quotes in recent history: “Ah, but tonight, I am roll-playing myself”. Pure gold.

Fantasy Blogosphere: July 11, 2010

We’ve got a fantastic blend this week, kicking off with both a review and interview with Tracy Hickman, and following up with a great review of Leviathan Wept and Other Stories by Daniel Abraham over at Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist. Adding to the variety this week is an analysis of reading on eBook readers at SFSignal, and a few Hobbit steins for all you Lord of the Rings fans out there.

Get in some good reading this week and stay out of the heat!

Fantasy Blogosphere: April 4, 2010

Do we have some golden eggs this week? I think so! Its Easter, and we’ve found reviews of books by Brandon Sanderson, Guy Gavriel Kay, Daniel Abraham and more. Also, check out an interview with George R.R. Martin and Daniel Abraham, and get GRRM’s most recent update on the 2011 Song of Ice & Fire calendar. Those calendars are so hard to find! I ordered my 2009 one on Amazon.com, only to receive an e-mail from Amazon three months into the year that they gave up trying to fill stock. Happy Easter!

And just for kicks this week (and to feature a video again, its been so long!), here’s some advice from your favorite super hero, Aquaman:

Fantasy Blogosphere: February 14, 2010

We kick off this week with a review of A Feast for Crows over at The Wertzone, and follow it up with reviews of books by Daniel Abraham, Mark Chadbourn, R.A. MacAvoy, and Robin Hobb.

We’ve also got some great interviews this week, featuring Robin Hobb, David Drake, and the first sci-fi author interview we’ve ever highlighted with Daniel Suarez. I heard the interview with Daniel Suarez on The Dragon Page podcast this week, and even though we cover mainly fantasy topics, this interview is just too good to miss. I love the idea of an author knowing more about internet security than the federal government, and will likely check out Daemon.

And finally, the e-book market is getting a bit rowdy, with Amazon and Macmillan doing a bit of bickering over prices this week.

Fantasy Blogosphere: February 7, 2010

We’ve got a boatload of reviews this week, covering everything from more recent titles like The Gathering Storm and Dragon Keeper to young classics such as A Storm of Swords, The Hero of Ages and The Lies of Locke Lamora. The Stormcaller by Tom Lloyd also looks promising, having potentially been looked over in a year when other authors like Scott Lynch were making their big debuts. The Dragon Page recently intervieweed Gail Z. Martin, and Ursula K. Le Guin continues to fight for her rights against Google. We cap off a stellar week with news of an inmate in Wisconsin being prohibited from playing D&D in prison. What will inmates want next, a renaissance festival on prison grounds?

Fantasy Blogosphere: January 24, 2010

If our last Fantasy Blogosphere post was the most eclectic yet, then this is the most abundant. Chock full of review goodness, this post features reviews of books by Robin Hobb, David Anthony Durham, Ken Scholes, George R.R. Martin, Guy Gavriel Kay, Daniel Abraham, James Barclay and Terry Pratchett, and a triage of Jim Butcher reviews from NextRead. Pat’s got a fresh interview with Joe Abercrombie, and there’s exciting news all around; its looking like we’re really going to see A Game of Thrones as an HBO series, R.A. Salvatore signs for 6 additional Forgotten Realms books, and the movie rights for Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy have been optioned. What a great time to be a fantasy fan!
