Hey, I was wondering if you guys could point me over to some good book blogs that cover science fiction and fantasy, especially space opera and space adventure.  Partially, I'd like to know where I can send my own stuff for review, but I'm also a big fan and love to read all the science fiction that I can find. 

So who in the blogosphere has their finger on the pulse of the genre, especially for the numerous indie published titles that are coming out these days?

Ones that allow for indie authors can be a hard find. But from a strictly reader's perspective, Pat's Fantasy Hotlist rocks! (http://fantasyhotlist.blogspot.com/)

:) Thanks for the shout out David!

We just added 3 more reviewers so that brings us up to 8 reviewers, each doing in-depth reviews twice per month.

I've just been through the whole sending out copies for review thing - turned out there were a few sites that actually had lists of them. You may find these useful:

Simon Royle's list of indie reviewers (which notes what genre they like):

Frida Fantastic posted this list:

Indie Book Reviewer has a very nice list:
http://indiebookreviewer.wordpress.com/science-fiction/
http://indiebookreviewer.wordpress.com/fantasy/

And there's another ridiculously big list here, broken down by genre:
http://hampton-networks.com/

And finally a list of reviewers who are just indie-friendly:

Stating the Blindingly Obvious dept: you're going to need to keep a record of who you send your queries to because you'll end up losing track otherwise. Bookmarking the sites in folders according to category is good, but nothing beats using a spreadsheet.

Also, be prepared for long waits for review: some people have six month waiting lists. Others just close down submissions for a while after they find themselves inundated. Many decide not to take either self-published or ebook submissions. You'll just have to wade through and figure it out, one site at a time...

Wow, thanks! This is great!
