The Alloy of Law reviews are pouring in, but sadly the biggest news is the passing of Anne McCaffrey. We have lost one of the greats. Her craft will be continued by the current crop of talented fantasy authors, and you can check out interviews with a few current greats like R.A. Salvatore, Patrick Rothfuss, Lev Grossman, Terry Brooks and Daniel Abraham below. Also, Brandon Sanderson talks about writing the Infinity Blade novella. Cool stuff.

Fantasy Blogosphere: September 19, 2011

An geek’s dream team of interviews this week, with all-star authors like Lev Grossman, Patrick Rothfuss, Scott Lynch, Daniel Abraham, Peter S. Beagle, and more. The Night Circus makes some noise, placing in first in Amazon’s top 5 fantasy bestseller list for the week, and the detailed observer will notice reviews and interviews with author Erin Morgenstern popping up around the ‘webs. The talk is Harry Potter fans are hungry, and The Night Circus may be just the dish. Also, for a few weeks in a row, old-school “Choose Your Own Adventure” style books are making appearances in the fantasy blogosphere. Did someone say comeback?

Beagle and Patrick Rothfuss to a great article on the NY Times discussing fantasy’s place in the modern world. Fantasy is mainstream, people. Rejoice.
