The wonderful and inspiring Robot that is Jeannette Ng delivered a fantastic acceptance speech at Worldcon 2019 after winning the John W Campbell Award for Best New Writer at the Hugo Award Ceremony on 18th August. We couldn’t be prouder of her and the statements she made. We stand with her always – “Stale. Sterile. Male. White” no more.
A week away from WorldCon and things are getting SUPER exciting over here at Robot HQ. We’ve got some great author signings, author panels, giveaways and exclusive bargains planned, and we can’t wait for it all to start.
Join us for a Robot Party!
Today we also announced the pre-launch party that we’ll be hosting for The Resurrectionist of Caligo by Wendy Trimboli & Alicia Zaloga. The book doesn’t release until 10th September, but you lucky WorldCon-goers will get the chance to purchase early and chat with the authors, while enjoying a drink or two on us. All are
You may have heard already, but one of our beloved authors James A Moore is currently undergoing cancer treatment. James is a great friend to the army, and when a friend is in need, a call to action is sounded. Which is why the Robot Overlords want to do their best to help James as much as is robot-ly possible, but we need your help too!
For the whole month of August, Angry Robot will be giving 100% of proceeds for any and all of James’ ebooks towards the bill for his treatment. Again, that’s 100% of proceeds for all
Attention, Robots! We have detected an incoming transmission, rippling through the multiverse from a distant pulsar. And this transmission is updating on a monthly basis… It seems the Angry Robot team have created a new podcast!
Join our resident overlord Eleanor Teasdale on a journey through the weird, wonderful worlds of scifi and fantasy, as she collects authors and exciting guest hosts. Together, they will tackle the hottest topics in genre fiction, discover galaxies heretofore unknown and maybe, just maybe, they’ll work out how to make the perfect cup of tea in space.
Our first episode will go
Now that our new leader has settled in and learned where the kettle is, she’s opening the doors to the proverbial castle – we’re thrilled to announce that we’re holding an open submission period for the entire month of May. We’d love to see your weird and wonderful SFF novels. We’re looking for stories well told, stories we haven’t heard before, stories with a message, but most importantly we’d love to hear from writers of colour and LGBTQ authors. Send us your darlings – we’ll read every one.
Due to the volume we expect (and hope!) to have we won’t
Greetings loyal servants of the Robot Army!
Today we announce the implementation of your new Robot Overlord, Eleanor Teasdale. You may commence bowing, kissing feet, pledging your eternal soul, etc.
Here’s a bit about your new lord-and-saviour:
Eleanor ran away to the circus briefly at 18 but decided publishing was a bit more her speed rather than trying to wrangle Strong Men and herding the angry goose. She joins Angry Robot from
Today is a good day. Today is a great day. Today, we are announcing Angry Robot’s…
FIRST EVER GRAPHIC NOVEL!
Liege-Killer: The Graphic Novel, written by the excellent Christopher Hinz, and illustrated by Jon Procter, will be released in June 2019… best summer yet.. am I right?!
Hinz’s award-winning novel has been stunningly reimagined as a graphic novel and includes an all-new foreword from the author discussing the evolution of Liege-Killer and its impact on the genre. For those of you unfamiliar, fear not; here’s the synopsis:
Two hundred years after a nuclear apocalypse forced humanity to
Hello Robots! Amanda Bridgeman here, putting forward my thoughts on the possibility of curing crime.
In my novel, The Subjugate, I explore a somewhat utopian idea of curing criminals from re-offense. At least, curing those who would inflict physical harm upon another human being. It may seem like a far-off dream to some, but the truth is, it may not be as far from reality as we think.
Exciting news from the mainframe!
Nominees have been announced this week for the 2019 Philip K. Dick Award, with the list featuring our very own Jeff Noon and his awesome meta-thriller The Body Library.

OK, here goes. Announcing the GORGEOUS new cover for Ash Kickers by Lee Gibbons. Wait for it… wait for it…
Oooh we feel all warm and tingly in our cold tin chests. Ash Kickers may be out in July (URGH! So long), but you lucky devils can pre-order it now from, well, pretty much anywhere.
As you may have heard, Angry Robot is making the move from the cosy town of Nottingham to the bright lights of London, where we’ll be joining the Watkins Media mothership. Whilst this is a big change, we feel confident that AR will continue to thrive and deliver the same amazing sci-fi and wtf fiction that you know and love from our new home.
Additionally, a new robot – Gemma Creffield – has joined the ranks as Editorial and Publicity Co-Ordinator. Gemma has worked as a publicist for Watkins Media for several years, creating and driving successful campaigns across their

Okay, we may have lied. There (hopefully) won’t be any epic death matches. Our Micah and RJ will be sitting down with author Charlotte Bond – also known for the Breaking the Glass Slipper podcast –

Another day, another beautiful cover to show off.
A few months ago we read a novel. A cold war novel, set in another galaxy, with snarky characters and a plot like you wouldn’t believe. This book, this excellent book, was Dan Moren‘s The Bayern Agenda. Needless to say we purchased it, and it will be hitting all good bookshelves in March 2019.
Here’s the synopsis:
Simon Kovalic, top intelligence operative for the Commonwealth of Independent Systems, is on the frontline of the burgeoning Cold War with the aggressive Illyrican Empire. He barely escapes his latest mission with a broken
