Today is the official, UK-print Publication Day of Angry Robot’s January 2013 releases (which have actually been available in US/CAN bookstores and ebook format since the middle of December, but that’s warehousing systems for you…)
Our January selection features the following top-notch titles: Ramez Naam‘s thought- and action-packed science fiction debut, Nexus, the second enthralling instalment in Anne Lyle‘s Night’s Masque Elizabethan fantasy saga, The Merchant of Dreams, and an omnibus edition of all three volumes of World Fantasy Award-winning author Lavie Tidhar‘s steampunk classic, The Bookman Histories.
What better way to kick-start your 2013 reading list than with an Angry Robot energy-boost from any or all of the above? Quite honestly, we can’t think of one.
So, you know what to do! Sprint on down to your very favourite high-street bookstore, or head online to order up copies of the following rather fabulous publications:
by Ramez Naam
Mankind gets an upgrade
In the near future, the experimental nano-drug Nexus can link human together, mind to mind. There are some who want to improve it. There are some who want to eradicate it. And there are others who just want to exploit it.
When a young scientist is caught improving Nexus, he’s thrust over his head into a world of danger and international espionage – for there is far more at stake than anyone realizes.
by Anne Lyle
The second book in the Night’s Masque series, sequel to The Alchemist of Souls.
Exiled from the court of Queen Elizabeth for accusing a powerful nobleman of treason, swordsman-turned-spy Mal Catlyn has been living in France with his young valet Coby Hendricks for the past year.
But Mal harbours a darker secret: he and his twin brother share a soul that once belonged to a skrayling, one of the mystical creatures from the New World.
When Mal’s dream about a skrayling shipwreck in the Mediterranean proves reality, it sets him on a path to the beautiful, treacherous city of Venice – and a conflict of loyalties that will place him and his friends in greater danger than ever.
by Lavie Tidhar
An omnibus edition of the most exciting steampunk series of recent years.
Lizard Kings and swashbuckling pirates, secret government agencies and scuttling automata, tripods and airships.
There’s never been a series with quite so much adventure crammed between two covers!
