Angry Robot Signs Marianne de Pierres in Two-Book Deal
Angry Robot is thrilled to announce the acquisition of two genre-busting books from Marianne de Pierres. The World English and Translation rights deal was negotiated by Senior Editor Lee Harris and Curtis Brown’s Tara Wynne. The first of this two-book series, Peacemaker, will be released in May 2014,and the as-yet-untitled sequelwill follow in 2015.
A true crossover, Peacemaker is a cracking combination scifi, fantasy, western, and crime.
We’ve got not one, but two great releases for you this month with a debut from Jay Poseyand the third book in the Collector Series by Chris F. Holm! Both are released today in the UK, with the US and ebook having a two-day jumpstart, and with the early reviews we’ve seen, we’re excited for the book-buying public to have their say. Here’s today’s celebratory books:
“The end of a series is such a bittersweet moment with a series as great as this one. Chris said he wanted to end this strong, he ended it Herculean.” Founding Fields

What a busy few weeks it’s been here at Robot HQ; so busy in fact, that I’ve been shamefully slow since my last Round-Up! But what better to cheer up a rainy Friday (in Nottingham, at least) than a good look back over our recent highlights:
You’ll know Michael Boatman from his work on TV shows such as Spin City, Anger Management, The Good Wife and Gossip Girl. After a lifetime of excelling on-screen, Michael has at last reached the zenith of his professional achievements, and become…

Somewhat frustrating, due to [Censored due to a National Security Issue], combined with an issue with [Redacted], our July books, which should have gone live yesterday, aren’t yet available in North America. Similarly, A Discourse in Steel is not available at Amazon UK (though iD is). These issues are being worked on by a team of highly trained ninja-like administrators, coders and ice-cream vendors, but we don’t yet have a confirmed date of when this will be resolved.
The Courts of the Feyre follows the adventures of Niall Petersen as he uncovers a hidden world of fey magic, strange history and uncanny creatures, and The Eighth Court is the culmination of Mike’s hard work throughout this series. Mike has written a lovely piece about finishing the series over on his site, do check it

Not only that, but Emma is running a competition to win the audio book of Any Other Name, details here:
We can’t get enough of that Mr Wendig, here at Angry Robot, which is why we refused to unlock his writing cell door, despite previous assurances to the contrary. He’s just going to have to write more for us! Bwahahahaaaaaaaaa!
Aaaaanyway. Chuck has graciously agreed to write another couple of books for us (bringing the current total to six!), beginning with Bloody Brides – the sequel to The Blue Blazes (out next Tuesday in eBook worldwide, and in paperback in
We love chain bookstores, online bookstores, secondhand bookstores, bookstores that double up as coffee stores, bookstores with stationery in them, bookstores with DVDs in them, and bookstores with just books in them. Anywhere that sells books is a place we like to be.
As well as supporting the major High Street and online stores we have an ongoing
Today marks the launch of Wesley Chu‘s brilliant The Lives of Tao in paperback in the US and Canada, and in ebook worldwide. Somewhat unusually for Angry Robot, Tao is our only book this month – but fear not, we published three last month and we have three next month for you, so you won’t be short on your robot fix, but for now it’s all about Roen and his alien
