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
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
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
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
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
… 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
A bit of a mammoth post, this morning, but with good reason – Angry Robot officially launched in the UK and Australia today.
Books are out, and selling. Champagne corks have popped, and Supreme Commander Marc Gascoigne bought cake!
It’s less than a year since Marco came onboard to set up the imprint, and six months since I joined him here at The Fortress of Cybernetic Rage. Less than a
See that? Number 57 in the WHSmith Travel charts.
This book wasn’t on the shelves at the weekend, but first thing this morning at York train station, Kaaron Warren‘s astonishing debut novel, Slights, is not only on display, but they only have one copy left!
Pretty good for a book that doesn’t officially launch until the day after tomorrow!
Moxyland essentially deals with technical progress and how on it’s current track could quite easily result in complete loss of personal freedom, think a very adult version of Cory Doctorow’s Little Brother mixed with Bladerunner, then peppered with “V” for Vendetta and topped off with
Not sure if you want to buy Book of Secrets, yet? Well, check out the post below for a free sample chapter, and if that doesn’t convince you, head on over to Random Musings and read David H Burton’s review.
It’s quick, witty, and spell-binding. I couldn’t put this down
We will be offering free sample chapters of all of our titles prior to release, and to show you just how much we love you (yes, even you – you look lovely today, by the way), today we have TWO free samples for you!

It’s that time again, when we announce our Website of the Month.
Dave Brendon’s Fantasy & SciFi Weblog is a good example of a genre blog.
The design is simple, and although the white/grey on black sometimes prevents the reading experience from being as enjoyable as it could be, there is always a lot of excellent content on the site – author interviews, competitions, news reports and reviews – and this more than makes up for it!
I’m not sure how to write this review.
I don’t think I have the words to describe how dark and depraved and strangely, perversely heartbreaking Slights is.
As well as being extremely positive about the
