Later today, I expect there will be HUNGER official blog tour stops at Just Blinded Book Reviews and at Reverie Book Reviews. Until then, a brief report about Albacon, and then a look at some other HUNGER reviews. (You know, in case you were on the fence about whether to buy a copy or two.)
Albacon 2010 was a lot of fun, and I’m not just saying that because I’ll be the Guest of Honor in 2011. The three panels I was on were enjoyable — there’s nothing like talking about vampires and other supernatural creatures to really get the blood pumping. My favorite panel was the one that focused on gender roles in SF/F; there was a lot of talk about covers and why there are such alpha male/uber chesty female stereotypes on covers, as well as other things. The signing was good — especially when a local photographer came by, eek! God, I haven’t blushed that much in a long time — and the reading was great fun. A captive audience, forced to listen to me talk about HUNGER and RAGE for an hour? What’s not to like?
Here are more reviews of HUNGER:
The Page Flipper gives HUNGER an A! Woot! (And apparently, Chelsea is a spy in training. Good to know!)
Coconuts & Cream gives HUNGER a 5 out of 5! Yay!
Harmony’s Radiant Reads rates HUNGER as “Amazingness”! Dude. How cool is that? I hope that RAGE will make the “Awesomesauce” rating.
