Salvatore, Patrick Rothfuss, Lev Grossman, Terry Brooks and Daniel Abraham below. Also, Brandon Sanderson talks about writing the Infinity Blade novella. Cool stuff.

An geek’s dream team of interviews this week, with all-star authors like Lev Grossman, Patrick Rothfuss, Scott Lynch, Daniel Abraham, Peter S. Beagle, and more. The Night Circus makes some noise, placing in first in Amazon’s top 5 fantasy bestseller list for the week, and the detailed observer will notice reviews and interviews with author Erin Morgenstern popping up around the ‘webs. The talk is Harry Potter fans are hungry, and The Night Circus may be just the dish. Also, for a few weeks in a row, old-school “Choose Your Own Adventure” style books are making appearances in the fantasy blogosphere. Did someone say comeback?

An absolute tempest of fantasy fiction this week, with reviews, interviews and top 10′s forming the perfect storm. Reviews of a pair of new novels, and a pair of classics, interviews with a few new authors, and a classic, and top 10 lists from a new author and a classic. At the eye of the storm you’ll find George R.R. Martin and Tad Williams live at the Fox Theater. Batten down the hatches and dig in.

A lazy Labor Day weekend, and the fantasy blogosphere is equally as calm. Chalk up a couple of reviews, a pair of reviews with Lev Grossman, and The Guild ladies at DragonCon to the weekend that kicks off college football. Also, I knew (or hoped!) it was coming: old school Choose Your Own Adventure-style books making the transition to the digital world. Boo-yaa.

Interviews galore this week, featuring everyone from old hands like R.A. Salvatore and Neil Gaiman, to relatively fresh talent like Lev Grossman and Mark Charan Newton. A couple of Game of Thrones scripts set for charity auction were heisted this week, and we get a first look at the new free MMO based on Tad Williams’ Otherland. It looks absolutely sick.

In case you haven’t been watching our Amazon’s top 5 fantasy books over the past few months, USA Today has summarized nicely: Record sales for George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons. It shows, as A Dance with Dragons is being reviewed in more mainstream publications, and the author himself is popping up to discuss the novel all over the interwebs. If you squint enough, you may be able to see the reviews of books by Ari Marmell, N.K. Jemisin, Steven Erikson and Brent Weeks amid the Dance maelstrom. Tack on a pair of interviews with Lev Grossman and Tracy Hickman, and I’d say this week will leave you with a belly full of fantasy.
