All things Fantasycon and the winning of lovely awards

bfs_1Sorry to report but the Robots are a little rust-tinged and creaky this morning, as we attempt to kickstart ailing battery packs back to life after a splendid weekend at the UK Fantasycon, organised by the British Fantasy Society. Held in the once-majestic shambolic splendour of the Grand Hotel in Scarborough, a combination of wonderful people, fine autumnal seaside weather and us winning the Best Independent Publisher 2016 award made

Robots invade China – all books now on Dangdang!

 

Angry Robot books on DangdangA message comes in from a distant frontier… Robot forces are advancing on all fronts. As of today, the Chinese censors has finished poring through all our files for subversive messages, and we’re very pleased to announce that the Angry Robot list is now available on the Chinese ebook platform Dangdang.

Cue a billion hats thrown into the air as one, as discordant electronic choirs lead the singing of the Angry Robot theme tune, cunningly rearranged for erhu

Angry Robot at GenCon

Dear Robot Legions, let me tell you a story about a young cyborg.

Years ago, before I was assimilated into the Angry Robot collective and fitted with the Sales-and-Marketing-o-Tron-9000 system, I was a mere gamer, spending evenings and weekends at my local game store, first as a regular, then as a cashwrap monkey.

Each summer, one thing loomed on the horizon and came to dominate every conversation:

GenCon

For those that don’t know, GenCon is the largest gaming convention in the USA, and is the height of the gaming world’s season. But even if you know about GenCon, you might

Adam Christopher Live!

AdamChristopher ©DCSterneA typo while writing the subject of this blog post had me writing Adam Christopher Lives! which is the cry that emanated from the mad scientist who created Adam all those years ago, and possibly the subject of a different article.

This one, however, is to tell you of the next British Fantasy Society Open Night, in which Adam is the Guest Author. He will be interviewed by Gillian Redfearn, the Publishing Director of Gollancz. Don’t think we’re not keeping an eye on you, Gillian… 🙂

A Newbie’s View of World Fantasy Con 2013

As most of you know, I don’t come from a scifi or fantasy publishing world; my previous role was in publicity for Irish non-fiction titles as well as crime fiction, and that oft-controversial term, literary fiction. I wasn’t utterly new to the terms SF / F / WTF (maybe I was to WTF!) as through my own personal reading, I’ve read – and loved –  Scott Lynch, Philip Pullman, and Eoin Colfer, and had the usual childhood favourites such as Narnia and Harry Potter. I love True Blood, Buffy, and Star Trek, amongst others but can’t quote you lines or tell
