Chuck WendigWe can’t get enough of that Mr Wendig, here at Angry Robot, which is why we refused to unlock his writing cell door, despite previous assurances to the contrary. He’s just going to have to write more for us! Bwahahahaaaaaaaaa!


Aaaaanyway. Chuck has graciously agreed to write another couple of books for us (bringing the current total to six!), beginning with Bloody Brides – the sequel to The Blue Blazes (out next Tuesday in eBook worldwide, and in paperback in the US and Canada, the following week in paperback in the UK). Bloody Brides will be published in early 2015, followed by another (top sekrit) book, later that year.

When we opened the food hatch to his cell, Chuck said,

“PLEASE CALL THE POLICE THEY WON’T LET ME LEAVE THEY JUST KEEP MAKING ME WRITE THESE BOOKS AND I HAVEN’T SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY IN TWO YEARS– oh! I’m sorry, what I mean to say is, Angry Robot is full of awesome people bringing awesome books into the world and I’m happy that they’re continuing to afford me the opportunity to reduce the overall quality of their stable of authors. I am, as always, excited to continue my relationship with these charming robot curators of genre fiction.”

The deal was negotiated by Angry Robot Senior Editor Lee Harris, and Stacia Decker of the Donald Maass Literary Agency.
