BYOR (Bring your own robot)

You know, for a science fiction convention, there has been a distinct lack of robots at WorldCon. Good job, then, that we decided to bring our own.

Angstrom the Angry Robot has had his anger chip removed, though as part of a mad experiment, and we have installed a gigolo chip installed, instead. This is him chatting with author Lauren Beukes at the tremendous Angry Robot party at WorldCon in Montreal last night.

Lauren left the party early, and coincidentally, Angstrom left a discreet 10 minutes later. No insinuations – just sayin’…

Angry Robot signs Aliette de Bodard & Lavie Tidhar

Yes, it certainly was damn hard to keep this news under wraps, but now it is time, at last, to talk of great things. Namely, that Angry Robot has signed two of the absolute hottest up-and-coming fantasy writers.

Aliette de BodardALIETTE DE BODARD is a writer and computer specialist whose short fiction has already brought her a John W Campbell Award nomination, for best newcomer. Living in Paris, Aliette is French, of Vietnamese extraction,

An author, a publisher and an agent walk into a bar…

Aliette-bw_pic-webFor French writer Aliette de Bodard, it was just  another of those annoying airport delays that plague us all from time to time. But it turned out to be just the break she needed.

Forced to spend an extra day in Canada at Calgary airport on her way back from the World Fantasy Convention last November, she fell in with a couple of cheery Brits. They got talking, and the pair mentioned they were setting up a new

Twenty Minutes With Tim Waggoner

As you may have seen, all Angry Robot books come with our equivalent of DVD Extras, those sometimes fascinating, sometimes trivial additional sections that round out your viewing experience. In our world that means the first chapter of book two, if available; an interview; some background on the writing of the book; appendices and other authorial notes. Our title Moxyland even has some templates for stencils to create your own Moxy graffiti, not of course that we condone defacing public buildings in the slightest.

In the flurry to get out stuff out and in your hands, we sometimes end

Two more signings

ANGRY ROBOT NOW OBSESSED WITH THE LETTER G
Publisher possibly “out of his mind”

Last month Angry Robot overlord Marc Gascoigne announced the signing of not one, not two, but three new authors to our list who … well, OK, we admit it, who all had names beginning with M. Yes, it was all just a spooky coincidence but a bit of fun, so yeah, we ran with it.

Today, he now claims, he’s signed two authors whose names begin with G. Ah. Surely MG is just messing with our minds now. What is this, some kind of

We all know Lauren (left) as the talented author of Moxyland, but did you know that she also surfs professionally? No? Well, that’s because I just made it up, but she does have a lot of interesting things to say about

Angry Robot is presented today by the letter “M”

Hide us! Something seriously spooky just happened. Today, the planets all being in the correct alignment, we are announcing the signing of not one, not two, but three authors whose names begin with M. Only our devious Robot overlord master (you know, him, whose name begins with… M! Aye caramba!) knows how the hell that happened, but check this trio out:

Oh, what a quote!

moxyyland-front-72dpi-actualSometimes we send our books to other authors we think might like them. Often, we ask for a quote for the book. Occasionally we get a quote back that is just so perfect, from just the right person, we wonder if that person was taking a peek inside our heads when they wrote it.

The mighty Charlie Stross has this (and much else) to say about our very own Moxyland:

the larval form of a new kind of SF munching its way

The Future – It’s Not All Doom and Gloom, tha knows.

That Andy Remic! tsk! Not content with selling a gazillion books, forging his own axe from the iron extracted from his own blood, and generally scaring the neighbourhood kids, now he’s only gone and formed a writers’ consortium type thing! Where does he find the time? (As long as he finishes the next couple of Kell’s Legend books we don’t mind – they’re huge fun!)

His latest

Kiss My Shiny Metal Axe!

Andy Remic, and friend
Andy Remic, and friend

Since working on the Kell’s Legend books, Remic has taken to creeping around local forests like a modern day Grendel, sporting his huge axe Ilanna (50KG of raw steel), hunting his own food and eating it raw, like a proper fantasy hero should.

The last person to see Remic alive was Trelltongue the Bastard, who subsequently penned a violent sonnet about Remic heading on a mission to track down

Kaaron Warren Interview

seamonkeysIn all the excitement of EasterCon, I forgot to post a link to this excellent interview with our very own Kaaron Warren. It’s a fascinating read, and you’ll get to find out what Kaaron was talking about when she wrote:

“any zombies which come will be so fascinated by the sea monkeys they’ll leave us alone.”
