Status Re-Boot for Angry Robot Lee Harris: ‘Senior Editor’ Level-Up Activated

Robo LeeIt was a dark day in the Angry Robot Fortress of Doom. The greatest robo-minds in the global organisation had gathered, with but one purpose:

“We need to talk about Lee.”

Silence. Grim, quite possibly foreboding silence.

“Er, why?”

“Well… he knows things. Lots of things. Things that, if brought into the harsh light of public scrutiny, could have massive and far-reaching consequences for our mission. We need to decide what to do about him.”

Happy UK Publication Day, Cassandra Rose Clarke and Lee Collins!

Today is the day (oh, happy day!) that all you UK-based readers get the chance to dash down to their favourite bricks-and-mortar bookstore and pick up their copies of our February 2013 releases. That’s if you’re not spending the day waiting eagerly by your letterbox for the arrival of a parcel from your favourite online retailer, of course. Whichever! Both are equally good as far as we’re concerned. Or why not skip the physical and grab the ebook instead? What’s that? You did that last week? Excellent! (And we mean that in a very Mister Burns way indeed…)

Anyhow, here’s

Ramez Naam’s [email protected] Video

Ramez Naam was invited to Google HQ recently as part of their Google Talks / [email protected] programme. He talked to a group of Google People about many of the ideas behind Nexus, the history of brain-machine interface technology, and asked the question: “would you add Google to your brain?”

If you’re at all interested in trans-humanism, post-humanism, medical technology, neuro-enhancement or just the age-old question of where a science fiction author gets their ideas, you should definitely watch this one:

Rather fascinating stuff. Feel free to share your thoughts via

Nekropolis – a fan trailer

On our bi-weekly stalk of our authors’ Facebook pages, blogs and Twitter streams, we came across this little gem – a fan-made trailer for Tim Waggoner‘s brilliant urban fantasy¬†Nekropolis. A lot of thought and care went into making this, and we’re duly impressed. It’s quite short, so click on PLAY and have a look.

And for those of you aching for more words from that nice Mr Waggoner, well, we just might have some news for you, soon…
