Please leave a message after the beep…

984475_beer_frostIt’s convention time again, which means that after today there’ll be no-one in the Angry Robot office until after Easter, so if you’re waiting for an email from us, it’s probably going to be after Tuesday 14th.

Marco and I will both be at EasterCon for the entire event, sitting on panels, and sitting on stools. Please come over and say “Hi”.

What we can tell you that isn’t blindingly obvious? Yes, that’s a corporate proof design based on our logo and not the actual finished book covers. These are super-limited and you haven’t got a prayer of snagging one — unless you go join our Robot Army of bloggers and reviewers, and help spread
