Penguin Random House announced yesterday the launch of a new science fiction and fantasy website, Unbound Worlds. The site, according to a press release, will “occupy the crossroads of science fiction and fantasy, including slipstream, pop science, fairy tales and folklore, magical realism, urban fantasy, and more.”
The website is the successor to Suvudu.
Unbound Worlds will feature a wide array of content, including event coverage of author appearances, panels and signings, exclusive interviews and author essays, features, including book lists, excerpts and coverage of popular series, giveaways of prizes, swag and advance copies of books, and a feature called Cage Match—”an annual original fiction bracket-style tournament of characters that enlists writers to create fictional battles and readers to vote for winners.”
“Unbound Worlds welcomes readers of all stripes, from fangirls to sci-fi diehards and those new to the genre,” said Kristin Fritz, the website’s director. “As we evolve and expand Suvudu into this new experience, our hope is that readers find Unbound Worlds the ideal go-to destination for the latest happenings in science fiction and fantasy books and news. Our goal is to create a place where readers can discover books and feel a sense of connection with authors and fellow fans.”
Unbound Worlds will also feature a weekly email newsletter.
