Welcome to the latest Angry Robot links round-up. It’s been a pretty titanic week here at AR HQ with the announcement of our first two Open Door author signings and the launch next year of our new YA imprint, Strange Chemistry. And here’s what else we’ve spotted around the interwebs since last week’s round-up:
SciFiBulletin.com has run reviews of both The World House (“An unusual and captivating tale of altered reality.”) and The World House: Restoration (“Complicated but eventually very satisfying”) by a certain Mr. Guy Adams, esq.
Meanwhile, over at Nerfreader, Chris has posted a review of the audio edition of Lauren Beukes Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning Zoo City, which is read by Justine Eyre. “A fast-paced neo-noir journey through present-day alternate reality South Africa. With animal familiars!”
Google Alerts has just let us know that the mighty Maurice Broaddus was discussing his major influences and the inspiration behind his Knights of the Breton Court series (George Pelecanos, Elmore Leonard, Jungian psychology, the city of Indianapolis and more) on his blog, back in October.
Aliette De Bodard guest posted on fellow Angry Robot author Kaaron Warren’s blog as part of Kaaron’s ‘Sparks’ series, talking about Aztecs, plot devices and the final part of her Obsidian and Blood trilogy, Master of the House of Darts.
Staying with Aliette, we’re all pleased as punch to report that Master of the House of Darts was one of YetiStomper’s books of the month for October.
If you’d care to point your browser in the direction of Clarkesworld Magazine, you’ll be able to partake of an audio reading of a short story called ‘The Smell of Orange Groves’ by our own Lavie Tidhar.
Chuck Wendig has been interviewed by fellow author Rowena Cory Daniells and they cover all sorts of conversational territory; from Chuck’s forthcoming Angry Robot titles to his “profane, in-your-face, sharply insightful and funny” blogging persona to gender bias in fantasy publishing. Go, read.
Chuck also took a turn in the interviewer’s chair as he put the questions to Matt Forbeck, covering wrtiing, curse words, parenting, alochol, story-telling and lots more. Go, read this as well.
