This week it’s WorldCon/Sasquan, and a whole heap of our authors are in attendance including Ramez Naam, Kameron Hurley, Wesley Chu, Adam Rakunas, Alyc Helms, Carrie Patel and Megan E. O’Keefe. If you’d like to check when and where they will be appearing make sure to take a look at our Sasquan round up.

Reviews for our September and October books are coming in thick and fast at the moment, and here are a few choice quotes:

“Steinmetz has done a wonderful job of blending superb battles between the ‘mancers and mundanes, with heart wrenching moments with Paul and his eight-year-old daughter Aliyah, while still walking the tightrope of creating a story about family, good vs evil, and trust.”
Books, Cats and Caffeine on The Flux

This melange of fast-paced action, character study, social study and witty dialogue makes up a thoroughly enjoyable narrative treat.”
SF and F Reviews on Windswept

“Read this book. Well, start with book one The Mirror Empire and then once you’ve been sucked into this ‘verse go read this one…I was totally immersed in this story.”
Susan Hated Literature on Empire Ascendant

There’s going to be a lot more in the coming weeks, so make sure to keep checking our Twitter feed for all of the newest reviews.

If you want to check out Matthew De Abaitua‘s teen self, then head over to Dear Teen Me for his brilliant letter to his teenage years. It’s definitely worth a read, even if just to take a peek at his childhood photos!

We were really happy to see this great post on about the enticing realism seen in Ramez Naam‘s Nexus. We’re not going to tell you our favourite bit of the review, in case you haven’t read the novel yet (there are some slight spoilers), but it’s good.

Yesterday, we had a great time at the Birmingham Forbidden Planet megastore with Matthew De Abaitua, Andy Remic, Susan Murray, Rod Duncan and Gav Thorpe. We’re continuing our invasion of Forbidden Planet next Thursday at the London megastore. Make sure to pop along if you’re around, the event is free and we have biscuits!

Finally, our Robot Overlord, Marc decided to chat with Nottingham-based culture magazine, LeftLion about life as a publisher and some of our up-and-coming books. Check it out and take a brief glimpse into the brain of a mastermind!
