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: March 21, 2011

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.
