We love our authors, dearly. Especially when they do weird and wonderful things like this:

The Alchemist of Souls by Anne Lyle

Alchemist_playmobil_lettered

(And no, we’re not sure why the covers are staggered like that – let’s just pretend it’s a deliberate design choice, and forget all about it).

Anne has recreated all three of her Night’s Masque books using Playmobil toys. See the full set here.

So we’ve decided to steal the idea honour her genius and run a competition.

What we’d like you to do:

Choose any Angry Robot book cover (they’re all there – over to the right and down a bit) and make your own version of it in the same way as Anne. You can use toys, people, masks, animals, trees, fish fingers – whatever you like. We’ll feature the winners on this page.

Stuff you need to know:
1) The cover should be a recognisable recreation of one of our covers.
2) Send your cover to us on a CD at the following address: Yeah, right! Email your image as a .jpg or .gif (RGB, not CMYK, please. If you don’t know what that means, just send it – it’ll be fine) to: INCOMING @ ANGRYROBOTBOOKS.COM
3) Closing date for entries: Midnight (wherever you are) on Wednesday, 30th October.
4) Q: “Do you mean midnight going into Wednesday, or midnight at the other end?”
A: Ah, you, know – whatevs.
5) Q: “No, I really need to know…”
A: {insert big, dramatic sigh} “OK, then – you can have until midnight coming out of Wednesday, and into Thursday.”
6) Anyone can enter, from anywhere in the world. Even if you’re a member of the Angry Robot team, or if you’re an Angry Robot author (though you probably won’t win), or if you’re a badger.

The Prizes.
Dunno, yet – we only just thought of the competition. Stuff from around the office, probably (books, audiobooks, stuff like that). The prize is hardly the point, is it? I mean, come on! Some people – sheesh!

  1. Cool, creative idea! Are we limited to one entry per person?
