We’ll be sending down a crack team of Robots to take over attend the con, set on chatting with you and reigning triumphant over every board game going.

Angry Robot Authors: Where to Find them in 2015

Angry Robot Live! #3 Recap

Greetings, Robot Army!

Yesterday I assembled four amazing authors to the Angry Robot orbital platform for a discussion of long-term world domination planning.

Oh, how silly of me. That was the other meeting. What I meant to say is that we were talking about Series Writing  – how to do it, why so many writers work in series, and how to make each work in a series stand on its own and/or build a larger story.

The panelists were Adam Christopher, Anne Lyle, Carrie Patel, and Chuck Wendig.
