  • News and Links: Bitterblue, The Magicians TV Show, and More

    Today I saw a lot of interesting SFF book related news and thought I’d share it with you. Publisher’s Weekly has an article today about Bitterblue, the forthcoming novel from Kristin Cashore that is connected to her novels Graceling and Fire. There’s now a cover and a release date – May 2012. I enjoyed Graceling and I LOVED Fire, so I’m excited to see it will be coming out next year! Jacqueline Carey posted an excerpt from Saints Astray, the […]

    When browsing through sites I read today, I saw quite a few interesting book-related news and links. Carol Berg mentioned that a new trade paperback edition of her novel Song of the Beast will be coming out on October 21.  I read this several years ago (after discovering Carol Berg’s wonderful Rai-kirah trilogy) and rather enjoyed it.  According to this post, there will also be a Song of the Beast novella, but there will be more on that later! Seanan […]

  • Stupid Ned Stark Game of Thrones is Dead; Long Live A Song of Ice and Fire!

    For now, at least, it’s all over but the wailing*: tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones on HBO was the season finale.  But for those of us who have been four books ahead of the television series all year, the main event is still to come.  The fifth book in A Song of Ice and Fire, A Dance with Dragons, is set to be released on July 12th.  But oh, it’s been a long, long wait–long enough that I’ve forgotten […]

    In response to the horrific recent events in Japan, some members of the speculative fiction community created Genre for Japan.  Starting on March 28, they will be auctioning items related to science fiction, fantasy, and horror and donating the proceeds to the Japan Tsunami Appeal run by the British Red Cross.  It’s a win/win situation since it’s a wonderful cause and there are some pretty great items available, such as a year’s supply of Tor Books and a special, limited […]

  • Bookish News and Links

    Tor.com has an excerpt from The Sea Thy Mistress, the conclusion to Elizabeth Bear’s Edda of Burdens trilogy.  I’m reading this right now and I am enjoying it immensely so far.  The books in this trilogy are so beautifully written and I love all the Norse mythology. Sadly, Sarah Monette’s cat recently passed away.  On February 2, she is holding a memorial fundraiser and the proceeds are going to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital’s Animal Companion Fund.  […]

  • A Few Links

    There are two great book giveaways over at the Tor/Forge blog right now (they are only open to US residents, though).  One is a Brandon Sanderson prize pack, which consists of hardcover copies of the Mistborn trilogy, Elantris, Warbreaker and The Way of Kings.  The other is 25 assorted fantasy books from them, and there are some really interesting sounding books there (including one of my new favorites, Elfland, which I’m working on a review of now).  It also includes […]
