The spotlight is shared by Pat Rothfuss and George Martin this week, the former garnering publicity following his recent release of The Wise Man’s Fear, and the latter on the forthcoming release of his HBO tv series. In addition to the barrage of coverage on these great authors, there are reviews of books by great authors that crossed this week: Glen Cook, Peter S. Beagle and Daniel Abraham.
Reviews of books by Joe Abercrombie, Daniel Abraham, Mark Hodder and Scott Westerfield this week, and interviews with Joe Abercrombie, Terry Brooks, Peter Orullian and Mark Lawrence. Production begins for The Hobbit movie, Gimli gives his take on portraying a dwarf in a film (advice for The Hobbit actors), and HBO releases a slew of shorts spotlighting individual characters.
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!
