Eclipse One Review; SFFWorld, WJ Williams, Linkage

Three new reviews went up at SFFWorld:

My review of Jonathan Strahan's eclectic speculative fiction anthology Eclipse One, which is the first of a series of unthemed anthologies.
Mark's review of The Inferior by Peadar Ó Guilín

Owen's review of Toll the Hounds, the latest doorstopper in Steven Erikson's spectacular Malazan saga.

I've said it before, but Robert over at Fantasy Book Critic is running one of the top, if not top, review/Speculative Fiction blogs today. He's recruited some help in review coverage (Liviu C. Suciu a frequent poster at the SFFWorld Forums and David Craddock) and today posted his monthly overview of what new books will be on the shelves this month.

Lastly, (but not leastly) Night Shade Books is kicking off a big promotion for Walter Jon Williams new novel, Implied Spaces (which I reviewed a couple of months ago), as well as the backlist they are publishing of his books.

Night Shade Books is proud to announce the publication of Walter Jon Williams's new novel, Implied Spaces. To celebrate the release of the book--which Kirkus Reviews describes as "an intelligent, delicate and precise novel of real depth: a pleasure to read, an undertaking to savor"--we have posted a self-contained excerpt from the book to our website.But that's not all, we've also posted a short interview with Walter about the book, and, with Walter's kind permission, have posted the complete text of his Nebula Award-winning novella The Green Leopard Plague. Both texts can be found in a variety of formats on our Downloads page, or via the links below.
