This week we’ve got a review of one of my favorite fantasy reads so far this year: Lamentation by Ken Scholes. Also check out the interview with Jim Butcher over at SciFiNow. A classic Frazetta sold for 1.5 million over the past week, and Tor made the cover art of Brandon Sanderson’s A Way of Kings available as desktop wallpapers, so grab ’em while they’re hot!

Fantasy Blogosphere: March 7, 2010

Four reviews kick off our fantasy blogosphere roundup this week, with reviews of books by Tad Williams, Joe Abercrombie, Ian C. Esslemont and Seressia Glass.  Following this is the fantastic news that HBO has approved A Game of Thrones, so we’ll be seeing something more than a static image soon. A few covers were released this week, for Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings, and Brent Weeks’ The Black Prism. Check out the interview with Brandon for his comments on his new series. I’m not sure I’m into the new photo realistic cover as exhibited on Weeks’ novel; we’ll have to keep an eye on this and see if it becomes a trend. And last but not least, some sort of explanation as to why Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter made the Amazon top 5 yesterday.
