The Marching Dead by Lee Battersby, April 2013Angry Robot’s very own Lee Battersby will be launching The Marching Dead – the second Marius don Hellespont novel, sequel to The Corpse-Rat King – at Stefen’s Books, 8 Shaftoe Lane, Perth, on Saturday 6th April at 2.00 p.m.

Here are the pertinent details from the man himself:

“I’ll be signing copies, inflicting a reading or two upon the gathered multitudes, and generally making with the fabulous author dahlink behaviour – kissing babies, shaking hands with dogs, molesting livestock… not to mention a cavalcade of entertainment like dancing girls, bear-baiting, midget death-trap wrestling and arbalest surfing, and then we’ll finish it all off by heading over the lane to local alehouse The Generous Squire, where Stefen has set aside an area especially for general mingling and the quaffing of hearty ales.

“Come on down, introduce yourself, grab a signed copy of The Marching Dead or The Corpse-Rat King if you’re the kind of lazy layabout who hasn’t read it yet, and generally hang out with us and have a good old nattery, beery, Saturday afternoon you know you’ve earned.

“What could be better?”

Honestly, we can’t think of many things that could. Alas, we Robots will be Angrily stuck back in the UK, but we’ll be raising a flagon or two of our own at a suitable juncture. If you’re a bit closer-to than we are, head on down to Stefen’s on the day and help make the afternoon one to remember.
