A week away from WorldCon and things are getting SUPER exciting over here at Robot HQ. We’ve got some great author signings, author panels, giveaways and exclusive bargains planned, and we can’t wait for it all to start.

Join us for a Robot Party!

Today we also announced the pre-launch party that we’ll be hosting for The Resurrectionist of Caligo by Wendy Trimboli & Alicia Zaloga. The book doesn’t release until 10th September, but you lucky WorldCon-goers will get the chance to purchase early and chat with the authors, while enjoying a drink or two on us. All are welcome, so come and join us in Wicklow Room 2 on Thursday from 8pm.

Exclusive Proof Giveaways

And, as if that wasn’t good enough, we’re planning on giving away 100 sample proof copies of The Resurrectionist of Caligo to celebrate its release during the WorldCon week. Giveaways will be open on Thursday at 4pm and Saturday at 10.30am for 30 minutes on the Angry Robot stand. It’s first-come, first-served, so get in quick because like your mumma always told ya, once it’s gone, it’s gone.

Where you can find the Robots

We know you’ll want to track down your favourite robot, watch their panels, tell them you love them, follow their every move… So to make it easier to do all those things, we’ve put together the list of where you can find the robots throughout WorldCon so you don’t miss out. (NB We’re not actually condoning stalking though.)
