Big news – Angry Robot’s books are going 3D!

Why should moviegoers have all the fun? The worlds of SF and fantasy on the big screen have long benefitted from the extra dimension that being shown in 3D has brought, and it’s high time we book people did the same.

Author Appearances: Matthew De Abaitua

Author of The Red Men, If Then and The DestructivesMatthew De Abaitua will be taking part in the Essex Book Festival by holding a creative writing workshop! But what’s even cooler than seeing Matthew spill forth wisdom, is that it’s taking place in a creepy, Cold War, underground nuclear bunker which just screams dystopia – only slightly different to where he lectures at the University of Essex right?!
