Just looking at the blogs I follow via Dreamwidth feeds and it occurred to me that other people might be interested.
The following are all focused on books, reading and science fiction / fantasy, and honestly, I can no longer remember which I added myself and which already had a Dreamwidth subscription feed.
- Amal El-Mohtar
Writer, who also does science fiction & fantasy book reviews for NPR books. (I’ve just googled this and found that NPR is National Public Radio. So now I know.)
- Ambling Along the Aqueduct
The blog for Aqueduct Press. Book reviews, book announcements, awards, and every December they do a really great “best of the year” series where lots of interesting people write about the pleasures of reading, viewing, and listening in the year just gone.
- Charlie Stross
Writer. The Laundry Files series is lovecraft horrors crossed with the British civil service. He blogs about the business of book publishing, politics, predictions for the future.
- Couch to Moon
Science fiction & fantasy reviews, among other things. One of the people shadowing the Clarke award.
- Eve’s Alexandria
Not very active at the moment, but might pick up as the Clarke shadow jury gets rolling.
- Nina Allen
Writer and critic, she does long thoughtful book reviews. Also part of Shadow Clarke 2017 (are we sensing a certain theme here?)
- Paper Knife
Maureen Kincaid Speller writes about reading, writing, literature and culture. And part of Shadow Clarke 2017. (You do realise that I subscribed to all these blogs BEFORE the Shadow Clarke was a thing).
- Book Reviews from Strange Horizons
I love reading intelligent & thoughtful reviews; it doesn’t matter whether I’m going to read the book itself or not, I still love getting someone else’s take on it.
- Zen Cho
Writer, UK-based. Essays, book announcements, rambling about writing.
