Great news Salvi Brentt fans! You may soon be seeing her character take form on the small screen! An Oscar and Golden Globe nominated TV production company have now optioned the rights to The Subjugate TV series.

And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve got the cover reveal for you right here!
That’s right, the Locus senior editor, winner of too-many-awards-to-mention and fantasy/sci-fi author will answer almost ANYTHING you ask of him, though probably not *that*, or *THAT* but definitely that.

Oh, isn’t today a lovely day for a new book announcement? It’s getting a little colder outside, we’re all starting to close in for the winter and we need a little something to look forward to, once the sun starts to shine on the other side. And that sliver of light, folks, the one you see burning brightly on the other side has a name… Quietus. And it’s hitting shelves in March 2018.

Hokus Bloke (aka Neil Gardner, the owner of the UK’s longest-established independent radio company, Ladbroke Productions) is an interesting character. On his personal blog he produces a new poem on a daily basis.
Yesterday, in honour of the Angry Robot launch he gave us “Robot Love” (without, thankfully, any lurid descriptions of hydraulic pump-action appendages).
Meanwhile, talking of appendages, Angry Robot head honco (what is a “honcho”, exactly?) Marc G popped up on Suite
SciFi Now Magazine – one of the UK’s premier genre titles (also available worldwide) asked me what it is I actually do in the Angry Robot office.
I’m not sure if they were genuinely curious, or if they doubted I did anything other than sip exotic cocktails all day while listening to live jazz played by a quartet of meerkats that live in the corner of the room.
