 A huge well done to Mike, Wes, Cassie, Madeline, and Mez on the first
Angry Robot Live Panel.

Hosted by our gregarious US Sales & Marketing Manager Mike Underwood, we learned some valuable lessons from this motley crew – namely, don’t ever ask Madeline Ashby about jetpacks or rush Wesley Chu in his scotch drinking. Watch and listen as they chat about instant communication, the scientific implausabilites of Prometheus, how they respectively became interested in SF, the social uses of SF, and much more. Thanks for everyone who joined in on the

Caroline here for my first Robot Round-Up, and what a gathering it is!

The week of April 15 was off a great start with Damien Walter’s Guardian round-up of the best young novelists from SF’s universe, even more so with not 1…nor 2…nor 3…but 4 Angry Robot authors being highlighted. Lauren Beukes, Madeleine Ashby, Aliette De Boddard, and Chuck Wendig are definitely four writers who, simply put, “tell great stories”.
