Robot Round-Up 06/12/13

Hey folks, today’s Robot Round-Up is a celebration of January 2014’s coming titles, and we have two exciting books to share with you! First up, the much anticipated The Cormorant, the third in Chuck Wendig’s fantastic Miriam Black series. Readers of the first two books loved the dark, punchy style (“fast, ferocious, sharp as a switchblade and fucking fantastic” – Lauren Beukes, author of Zoo City and The Shining Girls) and I can’t wait to see what you all think of the third book.

Winter Song: the first review

All good bookstores, nowAs well as all the attention that Dan Abnett’s Triumff: Her Majesty’s Hero is (deservedly) getting as it hits the shelves across the UK and Australia, there’s another great Angry Robot book out there this month. Winter Song by Colin Harvey takes a familiar hard science fiction theme – a sophisticated space traveller crashes on an apparently backward planet – and brings it to vibrant, affecting life … through the cunning

Angry Masquerade

One of the things we did at WorldCon a couple of weeks ago was to sponsor a prize in the masquerade. It was a fun event, and we offered a prize for the best Angry Robot.

Look left – I’m sure you’ll agree this one looks particularly angry. Well, I wouldn’t want to cross him!

The winner was Devin Harrigan and his magnificent creation, “Atomic Robot and the Thing From Beyond WorldCon”.

Devin wins a copy of every one of our books in our first year
