Fantast Round-Up: April 4, 2014

News:
-Aidan with news about a forthcoming Osten Ard trilogy from Tad Williams. AWESOME NEWS! I loved that trilogy, and this news makes me want to drop everything and read it for the 3rd time (I've never read a series more than twice). I can't tell you how excited I was last year when I found a 1st edition, first printing of The Dragonbone Chair in a used bookstore for $8.
-Orbit is offering a free, signed bookplate to those that pre-order The Crimson Campaign by Brian McClellan. Details here.
-Angry Robot posted a sample chapter from Sunstone by Freya Robertson

Reviews:
-Echoes of Betrayal by Elizabeth Moon: SFF World (Rob)...glad to see he really likes it. Convinced me to resume reading the first book in the series, Oath of Fealty .
-The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes: A Fantasy Reader (The references to Dortmunder on the cover have almost tempted me into buying this. I should at least send a sample to my phone.)
-The Master of Whitestorm by Janny Wurts: Only The Best Science Fiction and Fantasy (I'm always happy to see a new Wurts review posted on the web)
-Fool's Errand by Robin Hobb: Adventures in Reading
-Sword Sworn by James Aitcheson
