Miriam Black Cosplay?

Chuck Wendig has been getting so many great reviews for his Miriam Black books – Blackbirds was published in May, with the sequel Mockingbird just two months ago.

In a recent review iO9 really enjoyed Mockingbird, but this final sentence caught our eye:

I doubt she’ll ever be the kind of character people cosplay at conventions, but she sticks in your brain all the same.

Well, you know how we can be… Challenge accepted!

Robot Round-Up, 02.11.12

We’ve got a double-dose of Round-Up action for you this week, seeing as we didn’t quite manage to round anything up last week (our regular compiler-unit was sent on a top secret mission into SIBA-held territory on the Thursday night and as a direct consequence of its actions had to spend most of Friday in the repair bays, recuperating). Let’s kick off our fortnight’s worth of reviews, interviews and more with…

Happy Publication Week, Lee Collins!

This week we publish The Dead of Winter, the dark and dangerous weird western debut by Lee Collins, another of our Open Door discovery authors.

Robot Round-Up, 05.10.12

Hello, hello and welcome to a bumper, double-sized Robot Round-Up. Most of the AR crew was down at Fantasycon in Brighton last weekend, so we were a tad on the busy side – schmoozing, drinking, pontificating on panels, drinking, selling books, drinking and… well, drinking – so we’ve been saved everything up for a full fortnight’s worth (and then some) of AR linkage action. And here it is!

Robot Round-Up, 14.09.12

Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up. Our compiler ‘bot lost his Internet connection for an hour this afternoon, just as he was making a start on this write-up. So seeing as he has at least one eye-module on the rapidly-approaching hour of beer o’clock, you’ll have to excuse him if he skips the intro and gets the heck on with it…
