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?

Fantasy Blogosphere: November 8, 2010

The embargo on Towers of Midnight reviews has expired, and the reviews are pouring in. In addition to the onslaught of ToM reviews, interviews with Brandon Sanderson are popping up like hotcakes. I never really got on the Wheel of Time bandwagon after reading the first book in the series, but I am about 10% through The Way of Kings, so expect a review of Sanderson’s solo work sometime soon. Also check out the interview with Felicia Day, good stuff.

Brandon Sanderson is making the rounds, with The Way of Kings slated for release in August. He’s interviewed at The Dragon Page, Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist and Tor.com over the past few weeks, and The Way of Kings sounds like its going to be a great one. Also reviewed this week is Swords & Dark Magic, an anthology in the classic sword & sorcery genre featuring tales by newer authors like Steven Erickson, Scott Lynch, Joe Abercrombie, and many others you’ll recognize. We’ve found reviews of books by Jim Butcher, Tad Williams, Scott Lynch, Stephen King, and Guy Gavriel Kay among other reviews that hit the fantasy blogosphere recently. Wrapping up this week don’t miss the cover art that was recently released for Scott Lynch’s forthcoming The Republic of Thieves; its a beautiful cover for what is likely to be an equally beautiful novel.
