Today is the day (oh, happy day!) that all you UK-based readers get the chance to dash down to their favourite bricks-and-mortar bookstore and pick up their copies of our February 2013 releases. That’s if you’re not spending the day waiting eagerly by your letterbox for the arrival of a parcel from your favourite online retailer, of course. Whichever! Both are equally good as far as we’re concerned. Or why not skip the physical and grab the ebook instead? What’s that? You did that last week? Excellent! (And we mean that in a very Mister Burns way indeed…)
Anyhow, here’s what you lucky people now have the chance to spend your hard-earned pennies on: Cassandra Rose Clarke‘s heart-wrenching science fictional tale of love, loss and robots that is The Mad Scientist’s Daughter and Lee Collins‘s dark fantasy weird western She Returns From War, the action-packed, blood-soaked sequel to The Dead of Winter, which we published in November.
Do it! Do it now!

“Cat, this is Finn. He’s going to be your tutor.”
He looks and acts human, though he has no desire to be. He was programmed to assist his owners, and performs his duties to perfection. A billion-dollar construct, his primary task now is to tutor Cat. As she grows into a beautiful young woman, Finn is her guardian, her constant companion… and more.
But when the government grants rights to the ever-increasing robot population, however, Finn struggles to find his place in the world.
Following her acclaimed Young Adult debut for our sister imprint Strange Chemistry, The Assassin’s Curse, the very talented Cassandra Rose Clarke moves on to more adult themes, in a heartbreaking story of love, loss … and robots.
