Every once in a while, I like to give a little shout out to some of the new blogs that I’ve discovered. These are ones that, for one reason or another, I find myself coming back to again and again and I think you might do the same. It’s all about spreading the love and giving you folk a peek at some places that cover content that A Dribble of Ink doesn’t (much as I try!)
Walker of Worlds – Edited by Mark Chitty, Walker of Worlds is one of my first stops for anything Science Fiction related. He’s beginning to dip his toe into Fantasy, which is a nice little addition, but it’s the Science Fiction coverage that keeps me coming back for more. Chitty’s been around for a while, but 2009 was the year that he really solidified himself in the blogosphere with nearly 300 posts.
The Speculative Scotsman Edited by N.R. Alexander, The Speculative Scotsman is the newst blog on my list, only opening its doors at the very moment that we entered this decade (seriously, his first post was published 12:00am 01-01-10), but the quality and quantity of the content he’s already posted is impressive.
What draws me to The Speculative Scotsman is as much Alexander’s voice as his enthusiasm for the genre. If he keeps up this rate of posting quality content, I think Alexander’s blog will be one to watch in 2010.
Plus, if you read all the posts with a thick Scottish accent, The Speculative Scotsman becomes even more entertaining!
- Post-weird Thoughts – I first caught wind of Fabio Fernandes, editor over at Post-weird Thoughts, through his involvement with Fantasy Book Critic and I followed him over to his own personal blog. Like Larry Nolen at OF Blog of the Fallen, Fernandes steps outside the genre standards and helps introduce me to authors and stories I might otherwise be ignorant of. Post-weird Thoughts gives an eloquent worldview of the genre that few other blogs can match.
- Sam Sykes – Being an upcoming author, Sam Sykes’ personal blog is different in tone and content than the others listed here, but no less entertaining. Gives a good peak behind the curtain at the life of a writer as he approaches the release of his first novel, Tome of the Undergates. He’s not always for the light of heart, however!
There you go, a (very) non-exhaustive list of a few blogs that I’ve learned to love over the last few months/weeks. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them as much as I do, if you’re not reading them already. Just don’t forget to come back to A Dribble of Ink!
So, what’re some blogs that have really caught your eye in the last few months?
