Angry Robot, Competitions

Robots vs. Aliens

Hi, Robot Legions. Sales-and-Marketing-9000 Mike here.

Alien invasions are having a resurgence. But we at Angry Robot want the earth all to ourselves. So we’ve assembled a crack squadron of Angry Robot protagonists to strike back at the alien invaders.

So why not make a contest of it?

Rebirths of Tao File Update

Hi folks!

Many of you rushed to your digital stores to buy Wesley Chu’s phenomenal The Rebirths of Tao, concluding volume in his award-winning Tao Trilogy.

Robot Round-Up 12/3/15

Good afternoon Robot fans,

Eeek, it’s Friday 13th again tomorrow! Why tempt fate by leaving the house? We recommend you avoid ladders, black cats and the peril of meeting your doppelgänger and instead spend the day under the covers with a cup of (not too hot) tea and a good book. Just maybe skip page 13.

This week we’re getting very excited about the last in Wesley Chu’s popular Tao trilogy, The Rebirths of Tao, which is released on 2nd April (UK) and 7th April (USA).

Angry Robot’s Manuscript Wish List

Hello, Robot Readers!

Yesterday, Angry Robot Consulting Editor Phil Jourdan and myself took to the wilds of Twitter to join in #MSWL, a recurring Twitter bonanza where editors, agents, and publishing professionals tweet their Wish-List – the kinds of books and stories they’d love to see in their submissions. Our Fearless Leader Marc Gascoigne sent me his wish-list as well, to convey while he worked on the calibrating the Orbital Book Distribution Laser Grid.

If you’re a writer looking for a place to send your book, or a reader interested in knowing what your friendly Angry Robots are looking for next
