Robot Round-Up 28.06.13

What a busy few weeks it’s been here at Robot HQ; so busy in fact, that I’ve been shamefully slow since my last Round-Up! But what better to cheer up a rainy Friday (in Nottingham, at least) than a good look back over our recent highlights:

Any Round-Up that’s starting out with a nod from Barnes & Noble Review is going to be a good’un!

Not only did Angry Robot HQ get a shout-out for for our “offerings [that] always seem packaged with an appealing extra measure of excitement, zest, and thrills sometimes lacking with more sedate and long-established publishers”, but they highlighted recent titles, Black Feathers by Joseph D’Lacey, The Age Atomic by Adam Christopher, and The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu, as three of our “most recent charming books”!

The SF Signal Mind Meld also features Adam Christopher, along with Chuck Wendig and Strange Chemistry‘s Gwenda Bond as they

Robot Round-Up 17.05.13

Gather round drones, and check out what has been amazing couple of weeks for all things robotic and brilliant…actually makes us a little bit less angry, but don’t worry as it won’t last. Prepare yourselves…it’s a long ‘un.

vN by Madeline Ashby, cover Martin Bland/Spyroteknik

Robot Round-Up 26.04.13

Caroline here for my first Robot Round-Up, and what a gathering it is!

The week of April 15 was off a great start with Damien Walter’s Guardian round-up of the best young novelists from SF’s universe, even more so with not 1…nor 2…nor 3…but 4 Angry Robot authors being highlighted. Lauren Beukes, Madeleine Ashby, Aliette De Boddard, and Chuck Wendig are definitely four writers who, simply put, “tell great stories”.

Courtesy of @EMAldred, I present to you the wonderful display of Angry Robot Books in Foyles St Pancras:

Robot Round-Up, 25.05.12

Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s regular round-up of angrily robotic goings-on from across the Interwebs. Your friendly, neighbourhood Robot Overlord chums have been sweltering in a UK heatwave all this week (well, apart from the Lee Unit, who started the week sweltering in a Tunisian heatwave, just to be different).

We’ve just about managed to divert enough power from the cooling systems to keep our AR-activity-detection circuits working reasonably well. Here’s the AR-activity that we’ve detected on the incoming channels as a result:

Robot Round-Up, 27.01.12

Hello and, as always, welcome to the weekly round-up of links and shout-outs for folks that have been talking about Angry Robot and our Awesome Authors in the past week or so.

Also, a quick heads-up: most of the office will be disappearing off to the SFX Weekender at the back end of next week, so if the usual Round-Up doesn’t appear for some reason then that’ll be why.

Right, on with the linkaging! (What? Yes, that’s a word…)

The Chiswick Cannibals – A Christmas Story by Ishbelle Bee

We’re starting to get all Christmassy on the orbital death platform. We’ve strung up vile humans fairy lights, wrapped tinsel around the lasers, hung a wreath over the mainframe and even attached a single, tiny bauble to each end of editorial assistant Nick’s moustache. It’s all looking rather festive!

We hope you’re all feeling similarly jolly. If not, here’s a Christmas story by Ishbelle Bee, author of dark fairy tales The Singular and Extraordinary Tale of Mirror & Goliath and

A Monday Morning Book Delivery

There are no prizes for guessing one of the best aspects of publishing: all of the books. So you can imagine our excitement on returning to work after the weekend and being confronted with a mass of boxes from our UK distributor. Barely able to contain his excitement, our Robot Overlord Marc dived in and was quickly surrounded by piles of new books Empire AscendantMythmaker and The Flux, plus speedy reprints of The Dragon EngineTime Salvager and If Then. It’s kept him quiet almost all day, too.

Luckily, we had the cameras on standby to witness one man’s joy
