It seems that our Robots weren’t ready to stop partying after last week’s incredible FantasyCon, so they’re back at it again this week, with a visit to MCM Comic Con, London. Tim Pratt (The Wrong Stars, The Dreaming Stars), Jeannette Ng (Under the Pendulum Sun) and Micah Yongo (Lost Gods) will all be at the convention, talking on panels, signing novels and generally taking in the great atmosphere.

Below are their schedules for the weekend, though as always, these things are subject to change so do download the incredibly useful MCM app for all of the latest updates.

Come and say hi if you see us at the con, we’re the ones with the Robot lanyards!
