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
Next Thursday Marco and I will be heading off to Montreal for Anticipation – the 67th World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon).
While we’re there, we’re hosting an Angry Robot Launch Party on the Friday night, and at some time between 7.00pm and 8.00pm, the mighty Neil Gaiman will be dropping by to give a little talk to our guests, along with an additional, mystery guest! Believe me, if you’re at WorldCon next weekend, you won’t want to miss this one!
Well, you may have noticed a distinct reduction in the amount of posts, lately, as I had to take time off to look after various family members who had undergone operations, or (in the case of my 5 year-old daughter) suffered through a thoroughly depressing bout of swine flu!
Today, therefore, was my first day of freedom! Back to work with a vengeance, and able to leave the house at lunchtime to grab a quick snack away from formerly sick people.
Another day, another… hefty pair of boxes stuffed to the gunnells with copies of Book of Secrets and Nekropolis. Yowsah. Look for them in UK and Australian stores from August 6th. If you’re not in the UK, it’s overseas postage time for now, but they’ll be with you soon enough too.
PS, as to this little YouTube clip, no comment. The cute little b…
It has swords, axes, warriors, sex, death and freakin’ clockwork vampires!
Out in the UK and Australia in September.
Angry Robot’s goal is to be a genuinely global genre imprint, and when we were lucky enough to sign up the wonderful Kaaron Warren for her first three novels we knew we’d partially fulfilled our aim.
An Australian by upbringing, Kaaron now resides in Fiji, which is a long, loooong way from the London/Nottingham bases of the Robot.
Today, the incredible Slights is launching in Fiji, and they’re putting on quite

Last night all 3 Angry Roboteers attended the Annual HarperCollins Author Party. It’s an event held to celebrate our authors, and to recognise that they are the reason we are able to continue to produce the excellent books that have made HarperCollins one of the world’s leading publishers.
The event was held at the astonishingly beautiful Victoria & Albert Museum. the photograph to the left shows the garden area that we
That’s Toby on the left of the group shot on the cover of Moxyland. He’s a roguish slacker, living off his mother, while streamcasting his daily blog direct from his jacket, made from smartfabric. His jacket is the camera, and it is always on and broadcasting. What a twat.
A great idea? Definitely. Science fiction? Oh, yes. Impossible? Well, not so much… (and very soon not so sci-fi, which is kind of the point of the book).
MIT researchers developed light-detecting fibers
It’s fair to say that Angry Robot is getting a fair amount of coverage in SF circles at the moment. We’ve also had a lot of interest from overseas. The latest feature to be written about us can be found over at Culture Café – a French site dealing with all things interesting and of cultural significance. If you can read French, the feature can be found here. Actually, it can be found there even if you don’t read French, but it may be of less use
Well, another great few days for reviews – if this keeps up, we’ll have to start considering dropping the “Angry” from Angry Robot; maybe upgrade it temporarily to Slightly Miffed Robot – our equivalent of defcon 3.
A rich kid that is an independent media producer, a walking corporate advertisement addicted photographer, a street activist, and a corporate programmer with subversive sympathies. All of whom think
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 the technology
… but this time for the Angry ones.
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 101
Alasdair Stuart is a professional writer/reviewer/editor. As well as being an editor for Hub Magazine since its inception, he’s a member of the editorial team over at Pseudopod – in my opinion the world’s best horror
