Reviews of The Wise Man’s Fear, The Crippled God, Death Mask and more. Interviews with Guy Gavriel Kay and Terry Brooks, and a barrage of new Game of Thrones HBO series videos, this time each featuring an individual family. I for one am a little disappointed the House Stark video is set to “private” on YouTube.
George R.R. Martin news galore this week; everything from new photos from the HBO Game of Thrones series, and first shots of the Game of Thrones: Genesis video game, to a pronunciation guide for ASOIAF characters and word that the big man himself tied the knot this past week. More tv news with Felicia Day starring in a Dragon Age web series, and a few interviews with great authors like Robin Hobb, James Barclay and more.
With Comic-Con San Diego 2010 wrapping up, a lot of interviews from the event are starting to pop up online. Check out Suvudu’s interviews with Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, and Michael Scott, among a slew of other interviews crossing the fantasy blogosphere this week. The Blade Itself gets a makeover, grab a fantasy role-playing iPhone app, and never forget Thieves’ World.
Batten down the hatches because we’ve got a boatload of fantasy blogosphere news this week. Kick off the weekend with a slew of great reviews, spanning great fantasy novels like Imager’s Intrigue by L.E. Modesitt, Jr., a review of Joe Abercrombie’s entire trilogy, The First Law, to a review of a compilation edited by Neil Gaiman. Interviews aplenty this week as well, with some great names like David Drake, Naomi Novik, and others. Wrapping it all up is an update from George R.R. Martin on the casting, production team and film locations for the HBO series Game of Thrones.
A relatively quiet week in the fantasy blogosphere, but we’ve still found a few quality reviews, and some great interviews around the web. Not to mention that I keep getting signals that playing Dungeons & Dragons as a kid probably helped me develop a lot of the skills I use in my professional life today. Check out the post on how playing D&D can help prep you for med school. Great stuff.
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?
