The British Fantasy Award winners have been announced.
At Bookgasm, Rod Lott looks at Frank Beddor's The Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Redd; Ryun Patterson reviews Ivory by Mike Resnick; Brian Grossman reviews The Electric Church by Jeff Somers; and, lastly, Doug Bentin looks at Brain Keene's Dead Sea (a novel that begins with the line "I didn’t shoot the bitch until she started eating Alan’s face." Yes, I'm serious.)
At SciFi Weekly, Paul Di Fillippo reviews The Spiral Labyrinth by Matthew Hughes. I also missed one from last week: Jeff VanderMeer reviews The Electric Church by Jeff Somers.
At SciFi Wire, JJA profiles Daniel Abraham.
SF Site has been updated. Among the new offerings: reviews of Promises to Keep by Charles de Lint, In War Times by Kathleen Ann Goonan, and Powers by Ursula K. LeGuin. In additiona, Neil Walsh takes a closer look at two of my favorite novels from years gone by, Startide Rising by David Brin and The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.
Lastly, here's a sneak peak at the stunning cover of Gregory Frost's forthcoming novel Shadowbridge (a novel I cannot recommend highly enough, by the way - simply gorgeous stuff):
