After the joy of GenCon over in the States, it’s finally time for the UK to get a bite of the convention apple, as Nine Worlds is happening this weekend in London!
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.
If there’s one thing that the Angry Robot horde love to do, it’s to crawl out of our writing holes and have a chat. Partially it’s because we need to see the light of day and socialise after a hard few months of writing, but also it’s because we love you guys. You keep us doing what we do.

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.

Hello to all you robots (angry or otherwise!),
And in honour of last night’s book signing event at the Forbidden Planet Megastore in London we’re bringing you some of the more recent reviews to remind everyone what a fantastic book this is!
Hang Wire by Adam Christopher
Over the last four-and-a-bit years, we’ve published a range of SF/F/WTF? that we’re immensely proud of; from our very first titles, Moxyland by Lauren Beuekes and Slights by Kaaron Warren to today’s 100th title, Adam Christopher‘s Hang Wire. We’ve had award-winners (Lauren’s Zoo City), great sellers (such as Ramez Naam‘s Nexus, amongst many more) and critically-acclaimed titles, such as Cassandra Rose Clarke‘s The Mad Scientist’s Daughter (also just nominated for the Philip K. Dick award!).
Round up time again, and this week we’re taking a look at our 100th book(!), Adam Christopher’s Hang Wire. We’ve been getting some great reviews, and there are also some cool competitions running to celebrate 100 Angry Robot books!
Hang Wire by Adam Christopher
We’ve had such a great response to Hang Wire, but before we dive into what you guys have been saying about it, let’s take a look at some of things Adam has been up to.
On Thursday 6th March, from 6 – 7 pm, Adam Christopher will be signing copies of Hang Wire and The Burning Dark at Forbidden Planet Megastore (179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London SE1 0UP). Find out more about the event on Forbidden Planet’s site.
