More on bloggers promoting SF/F

Glenn Reynolds noticed my comment the other day about Instapundit's role in promoting science fiction and fantasy (thanks for the link, Glenn). Tobias Buckell then noticed Glenn's comment and said there are three bloggers who create "great word of mouth" for SF/F: Cory Doctorow at Boing Boing, Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit, and John Scalzi at the Whatever and via Ficlets.

Buckell adds that his own books have benefited from these bloggers and that they "probably do more than the hundreds of pieces of spam by self published authors I see dotting forums, blog comments areas, and my inbox around the internet." It's impossible to disagree with this statement.
