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, 15.02.13

Hello and welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up. Having put our email woes behind us, our compiler-bot has been able to gather up another bountiful harvest of Angrily Robotic links.

The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke - Feb 2013• Kristin at My Bookish Ways: “Think you can’t get invested in a romance between a

Robot Round-Up, 18.01.13

Hello and welcome to another Robot Round-Up. We’ve got snow here in the UK, which means half the nation has ground to a halt and the whole of Scandinavia is laughing up their sleeves at us. But that’s probably nothing new. Anyhow, all of the above has very little to do with this week’s collection of links-of-Angry-Robot-interest, which looks a little something (or, indeed, rather a lot) like this:

Happy US/CAN & ebook Pub Day to Paul S. Kemp, Jo Anderton & Aliette de Bodard!

Our three brand new July 2012 books are officially published next Thursday, but as usual the distribution system in the US and Canada means that our North American editions are out a littler earlier. And the ebook editions are available from today, too.

All of which means that if you’re on the right side of the Atlantic, or if you’re nicely ereader-equipped, you can get your mitts (virtual or otherwise) on the following new books:

Robot Round-Up, 08.06.12

Hello, hello and welcome to another of our regular Robot Round-Up link-a-thons. It’s been a short week here in the Angry Robot UK HQ, thanks to QEII’s diamond jubilee and the associated double bank-holiday. But that hasn’t stopped our authors from doing their thing, nor the massed ranks of reviewers who have been taking a look at an impressive selection of Angry Robot books this week. So, without further ado or digression:

Robot Round-Up, 11.05.12

Hello, hello and welcome to the latest Robot Round-Up. We’re kicking off with a couple of pieces of coverage for one of our forthcoming titles, Madeline Ashby‘s debut novel vN, which we have more than a sneaking suspicion you’ll be hearing a lot more about this summer:

Charlie Jane Anders has reviewed vN for the mighty IO9.com and under the headline “The Most Messed Up Book About Robot Consciousness Ever” draws a few comparisons to Philip K. Dick, Amy Thomson and Battlestar
