Author Signings and New Reviews

A few signings coming up:

First up, Andy Remic (author of Kell’s Legend and Soul Stealers as well as a bunch of stuff for other folk). Andy will be popping into Waterstones, Lincoln this Friday (12th November) to sign some stock. He’s not doing a formal signing, as Katie Price (the model formerly known as Jordan) is doing one, instead. So, do pop along – he’ll be happy to chat and sign something for you.

Staying with Rem for

Send us a photo of you in B&N and Win!

See the display in the photo? Angry Robot displays are in Barnes and Noble stores across the USA. This one was taken in a B&N store in Springfield, New Jersey.

What we’d like you to do is to take a photograph of you, holding one of our books, standing next to one of our displays in a Barnes and Noble*. The display should be clearly in shot with you. It’s probably a good idea to get permission from

In the USA? Win some Angry Robot goodies!

This will be our last blog entry of the day – we think you deserve a rest.

Today (as you will have gathered by now) we launched in the US and Canada. Our books are being carried by many bookshops (chains and independents), but in Barnes and Noble for the next three months our titles will be presented in freestanding Angry Robot displays.

Which is cool.

We’d quite like to see these displays, but we’re thousands of miles away. {sad face} So,

Meet Dan Abnett next week!

If you’re in the London area (or can travel to it) next Wednesday (25th August), it’s well worth popping into Belgravia, where I will be interviewing multi-million-selling novelist, comic-writer and screenwriter, Dan Abnett for the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA).

Dan is a great speaker, and with over 20 years’ experience in the business, he’s always fascinating to listen to.

So, whether you’re a fan of his comic work, his Black Library novels, his TV

Lauren’s interview at the BSFA (podcast)

If you missed the (extremely well-attended) British Science Fiction Association get-together last week, with special guest Lauren Beukes, you can listen to it here.

This month, the special guest is Dan Abnett – well worth attending (August 25th, London). I’ll be interviewing Dan about his writing career – his comics, his novels, his screenwriting. And Dan is always worth listening

Beukes rocks the BSFA

A fine time was had by all in London last night, when an unusually packed BSFA meet played host to the one and only Lauren Beukes.

Following a day spent shopping, sightseeing and discussing top secret projects with a Certain Big Movie Producer, I’d thought I’d perhaps worn Lauren out. But faced with an attentive crowd hanging on her every word, Lauren rose to the occasion. Following a reading from Zoo City, Lauren was interviewed by blogger

Lauren Beukes and Angry Robot are in London later this month

A brief reminder – Lauren Beukes (author of the fantastic, critically-acclaimed Moxyland) is making a rare visit to the UK this month from her native South Africa, and we’ve lined up three events where you can meet her, and get your books signed.

Not only that, to celebrate her visit we’ve teamed up with Forbidden Planet to bring you an Angry Robot first – a limited edition hardcover of her forthcoming novel, Zoo City. It’s

Post-Alt.Fiction

Well, what a marvellous event that was. Saturday’s Alt.Fiction festival was a hymn to the good and the great in genre writing. As previously mentioned, Angry Robot was very present there, with both Robot Overlords in attendance, along with seven of our authors.

It was a great opportunity to catch up with our authors, and with friends from all over the SF spectrum – both new and old –  including Amanda Rutter (Floor to Ceiling Books), Adele Harrison and Vincent Holland-Keen (Un:Bound), Adam Christopher,

Meet Angry Robot at Alt.Fiction

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of good genre events, and Derby’s Alt.Fiction is a very good genre event! Both Marco and I will be there, spouting our own brand of insanity on panels and podcasts, and quite a few of our authors will be around, too! Some attending as guests and panelists, some there just for fun!

Come along and say “Hi.”
Or even better, say “Hi – here’s a drink I just bought for you out of my own money.”

Here’s the low-down:

Dan Abnett on Babel Clash

Dan&chairBabel Clash is the lively daily blog for all fans of SF & F (and maybe a bit of WTF if we’re lucky) from the American Borders bookstore chain. Starting today, and for the next two weeks, Dan Abnett is going to be providing some insights into his world(s) – and also into some of the worlds that he writes tie-in fiction for, such as Dr Who and Warhammer.

Along the way he’s also promising some
