It’s here! It’s huge! Angry Robot authors are all set to invade Kansas City for WorldCon 74 – August 17-21. Our plans are simple – invade signings, panels, discussions, drinking events and even going for a run – the opportunities to chat and catch up are legion. Do say hi – our authors are a lovely bunch.

Our Mike Underwood will also be constantly available at our Angry Robot booth in the dealer room – booth #21. Seek him out, touch the books, meet the authors!

The WorldCon schedule is vast, and although they do have a pretty slick event planning tool, we’re helping out by building the Angry Robot schedule below – this is everything (we think) that our gang are up to. Remember things do change though so also keep an eye on the official schedule. We’ll also be tweeting on the Angry Robot Twitter feed about all the events our authors are doing so you don’t have to miss a thing. Have an amazing time, you guys!
