November Blog-Love!

03 Nov

I know, I know, I’m a bit late with this, but in my defence, I posted 3 new reviews and 2 new interviews, plus the news about the second Macht book from Paul Kearney. πŸ™‚

Okay, first up, Peter V Brett has asked for some help: if you’re a fan of his work, follow this link to his blog and… well, I’ll let you read it. πŸ™‚ Also, send good thoughts – the man is crapping himself (or was) because he’s attending the World Fantasy Convention! Great news for him and for the forthcoming release in the US of The Warded Man. πŸ™‚ (Peat’s gonna be saying New York Times Bestseller soon, you mark my words!)

Next up, we’ve got Russell Kirkpatrick; he’s got a post about injuries and stupidity (neither of those his mistake), and he’s also finished the last book in his second series!

We’ve then got Blood of the Muse, hosting yet another giveaway (these guys are great with giveaways!) – this time, you can win a paperback copy of Terry Brooks’ Armageddon’s Children! And bloggers, you get an extra entry if you punt it on your blog! (Which I am doing, of course). πŸ™‚

Jay Franco of Bookrastination has got a post up concerning his trip with good friend Peter V Brett to the World Fantasy Convention, and Jay’s put up a great pic of Peat (looking a bit startled, that must have been a sneaky pic!). πŸ™‚

Next up, fellow World Fantasy Convention attendee David Anthony Durham has got some great news: he’s finished The Other Lands, sequel to Acacia! πŸ™‚ He’s a bit stressed, so send good thoughts his way, too. πŸ™‚

Ian MacDonald has got quite a funny post regarding purchases he recently made – let me know if you see the irony in the second purchase. πŸ™‚

Patrick Rothfuss has got his own review of Terry Pratchett’s Nation, well-worth a read if you haven’t yet bought the book. πŸ™‚

Fantasy Book Critic have got a great post up: an interview with Tobias Buckell! πŸ™‚

Graeme’s got his review of Kelly Armstrong’s latest offering, and you know you can trust Graeme’s reviews!

My good friend Gustav has got a post up regarding what happened with Fascination Books, the company I work for – so for those of you who didn’t read hear what happened, check out Gustav’s blog. πŸ™‚

Karen Miller, still a bit shaky after her bout with – well, you’ll just have to read what happened, won’t you? πŸ™‚

This next post makes me extremely jealous: Liz and Mark got to meet Neil Gaiman! Read all about it, with pics! πŸ™‚

Pat has got some great news! A well-deserving author has won the top award at the World Fantasy Convention, and he’s also got an exclusive review of R. Scott Bakker’s latest and greatest! πŸ™‚

Get to know Ashe even more with this post! Great blog, guys, well worth a read. πŸ™‚

And last but definately not least, Mark’s also making me jealous: he’s showing off the latest additions to his bookshelf, updating on reviews that he’ll be posting shortly, and also has a great post dedicated to the latest SF releases for November!

Whoawhoawhoa! Forgot one last person! πŸ™‚ Jo Graham has announced the winners of her latest giveaway (giveaway? Yes!), and there are still more books waiting for lucky readers! So get over there! πŸ™‚

Okay, phew, that’s it for now. πŸ™‚ Check back soon for my interview with Philip Palmer, and I’ll also (hopefully) have some news for you all regarding the giveaways I’d like to start doing. πŸ™‚

Until then,

Be Fantastic!
