New Author Alert! Jeannette Ng

Good News Robots!Angry Robot Author Jeannette Ng

We have ensared, signed another new author: the wonderful Jeannette Ng.

Jeannette is originally from Hong Kong but now lives in Durham, UK. Her MA in Medieval and Renaissance Studies fed into an interest in medieval and missionary theology, which in turn spawned her love for writing gothic fantasy with a theological twist. And that’s just what she did with Under the Pendulum Sun, a dark gothic fantasy that interweaves a stunning fairyland, theology and forbidden desires.

Head over to the B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog for the full announcement and to read Jeannette’s blog on literary representations of Fae.

We can’t wait to reveal more details so keep an eye out for more over the next few months. Until then, make a note in your calendars as Under The Pendulum Sun will be hitting shelves in October 2017.

New Signing: Tim Pratt’s The Wrong Stars

Angry Robot author Tim PrattAs you may have seen over on the Barnes & Noble SF & F Blog we’ve announced a bit of exciting news… that we’ve signed Hugo Award-winning author Tim Pratt for a bloody wonderful new space opera, The Wrong Stars.

Here’s the synopsis:

A ragtag crew of humans and posthumans discover alien technology that could change the fate of humanity… or awaken an ancient evil and destroy all life in the galaxy.

The close-knit crew of the White Raven run freight, salvage, and (sometimes) security at the fringes of our solar system. They discover the wreck of a centuries-old exploration vessel floating light years away from its intended destination and revive its sole occupant, who wakes with news of First Contact. When the crew break it to her that humanity has alien friends already, she reveals that these are very different extra-terrestrials… And the technology they left her with threatens to unleash a terrible existential threat to all intelligent life in the galaxy—but also opens up unprecedented opportunities to explore the larger universe.

Sounds amazing, right? Vast universes, ancient evil, aliens and future-tech – The Wrong Stars has it all, and we’re so excited to be publishing it in November 2017.
