As has now become customary, we’re listing below the books we published last year that are eligible for various awards. Being British, however, we’re doing it furtively, and we’re looking up every now and then to make sure no-one’s watching us.
As ever, this list is provided purely as an aide-mémoire, not as a list of recommendations – if you’ve read the works below and consider them to be award-worthy, the authors would be thrilled if you would consider nominating/voting for them. If you haven’t read them, they’re all available from your favourite offline or online store.

Company Townwill be published in late 2014 and Rev, the sequel to vN and iD will follow in 2015! The worldwide rights deal was negotiated by Senior Editor Lee Harris and Monica Pacheco of Anne McDermid and Associates.

We can’t get enough of that Mr Wendig, here at Angry Robot, which is why we refused to unlock his writing cell door, despite previous assurances to the contrary. He’s just going to have to write more for us! Bwahahahaaaaaaaaa!
Aaaaanyway. Chuck has graciously agreed to write another couple of books for us (bringing the current total to six!), beginning with Bloody Brides – the sequel to The Blue Blazes (out next Tuesday in eBook worldwide, and in paperback in the

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?”

We’ve just concluded a deal with Emma Newman (via her fabulous agent, Jennifer Udden at the Donald Maass Literary Agency in New York) for three books in Emma’s Split Worlds urban fantasy series, and the first one – Between Two Thorns – will be published in March next year, and we couldn’t be more delighted. The series is fabulous, but you probably already guessed that.
Emma’s reaction to the deal was “I still can’t believe this is happening –
