Trent Jamieson is launching the Australian release of Night’s Engines – the second and concluding part of his rather fabulous Nightbound Land duology – with a ‘Come As Trent Jamiseon Dress-Up Party’ at Avid Reader in Queensland, Australia, tomorrow, July 19th (which, yes, is a little on the short-notice side, but in my defence I was on annual leave all last week and I’ve only

This Saturday at the Quad in Derby, the first Edge-Lit Festival/Convention takes place. Angry Robot will be there (of course), so do come say “Hi.” Or even better, come say “Hi. I just found this £50 note – is it yours?”
Yes. Yes, it is.
You can find the full schedule of events here, but these are the panels and workshops with an Angry Robot or two in attendance (Angry Robot peeps in bold):
The Writer and the Internet
Anne Lyle, Emma Newman, Mark Yon (mod)
Are We Still
Here in the UK this week it’s Independent Booksellers’ Week. Indie booksellers are the lifeblood of the community, and as an independent publisher, we’re committed to supporting our friends on the high street.
Welcome to the Angry Robot Clonefiles initiative.
We sometimes feel our customers are having to choose between a physical book and an e-format, when what probably suits them best is to have both in the same package, and so we are going to start giving away the digital version of each of our novels free with the physical paperback, in selected indie bookstores.
We’re partnering with Mostly
The mighty Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds and Mockingbird (forthcoming: September 2012) will be signing copies of (and quite possibly reading from) the former, next Friday evening, in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Where: The Doylestown Bookshop, 16 S Main St. Doylestown, PA
When: Friday, June 22nd, 7.00 pm until 9.00 pm
Pertinent Details: Doesn’t look like there are any ticketing requirements, but it might be an idea to contact the Doylestown Bookship to check, just in case.
And here’s a Google
So, it’s EasterCon weekend. Huzzah! And it’s Easter. Huzzah! But it only lasts a few days. Boo!
If you’re booked into the convention, this is the updated list of what the Angry Robot mob are up to:
3pm – Archery in Fantasy, TV and Film
Mike Shevdon (who tells us, “I guarantee that if you see archery in a fantasy film after [this], you will not see it in the same light again. It’s a promise”.) Mike will also be getting his weapon out on stage.
Your Attention, if you Please!
Just a quick reminder: it would be grand if any and every fantasy fiction fan in the Greater Manchester area (or within reasonable travelling distance of Manchester City Centre) could get their meat-suits down to the Manchester Arndale branch of Waterstones Booksellers tomorrow, Saturday March 31st, from 1.30 – 3.00 in the afternoon.
Full details in our previous post on the subject.
Next week we’ll be at EasterCon! Hooray! It’s nearly full, though, so you’ll have to buy your membership quickly, if you haven’t already! Boo! As ever, Angry Robot will be out in force. This is where you find us, in one of the most interesting EasterCon schedules we’ve seen in years:
3pm – Before Watchmen
Adam Christopher, with James Bacon, Kim Curran, Gaspode and Steve K
6pm – What is I?
Aliette de Bodard, with Dr Bob, John Dallman and Damien Walter
This coming weekend, Angry Robot authors and Overlords will be strutting their funky stuff (Oh, no!) to the musical stylings of Mr Craig Charles as well as lounging in various bars and appearing on panels and signing books – you know the drill.
Dan Abnett, Adam Christopher, Anne Lyle, Andy Remic, David Tallerman, Lavie Tidhar, Guy Haley and Ian Whates
It’s that time of the year, again – FantasyCon is once more upon us.
As ever, Angry Robot will be out in force. If you’re in Brighton this weekend, do pop along and say “Hi.” It’s well-worth attending.

Adam Christopher and Lee Harris on the panel Maintaining Your Online Presence
Guy Adams in
If you’re going to Conflux, Australia’s premier SF convention, at the end of the month, be sure to join a trio of our best authors for some metallic fun and games. Out in force and pressing the flesh of all you grateful
Those stand-up gents and dames over at Tor.com are running Noir Week right about now, and we thought we might just muscle in on a piece of their action.
Yes, really. Fly, fly now!
Next week, if you’re at Renovation (this year’s WorldCon) in Reno, you’ll find three Angry Robots wandering the hallways in search of tea, wine or cake. This is who’ll be there, and where we’ll be:

Our lot get about a bit, you know. And they’re always happy to see you. So here’s a list of where some of our authors are going to be over the next couple of weeks.
Two of our authors, Ian Whates and Gary McMahon are going to be signing copies of their books in the Manchester Deansgate Waterstone’s this Saturday (21st May) from 2pm, as part of a massive SF event being put on by the store. Ian will be signing copies of both of his books in the City of Don’t forget – we’ll be launching all three of these titles at Waterstones Birmingham High Street tomorrow at 12.30, and repeating the signing at Camp Advent Calendar Un:Bound Video
Today’s Advent Calendar surprise is courtesy of Tim Waggoner (author of Nekropolis and Dead Streets). It may not be the most uplifting Christmas message you’ll read, but it’s certainly one of the most honest!
After a few teething problems, the team at Un:Bound have launched their pilot video magazine, Un:Bound Video Editions. There’s a lot crammed into the half-hour, including a behind-the-scenes at Tor, some author interviews, Alasdair Stuart being kind and mean at the same time, and yours truly, giving the first in a series of publishing tips.
