Chris F. Holm Dead Harvest Launch – Longfellow Books, Portland, March 8th

If you’re anywhere near Portland, Maine, on Thursday March 8th, and if you’re the sort of wonderfully enthusiastic and delightfully bookish type of person who gets a proper kick out of helping to support local authors – and in this case an author of rather superb crime / supernatural / urban fantasy / noir crossover fiction, we might add – then you really need to run (don’t walk) down to Longfellow Books at 7.00 p.m.

Here’s why:

Robot Round-Up, 17.02.12

Oi, you! Yes, you, at the back! Stop fiddling with whatever you’re fiddling with – that’s right, I can see you, put it away – and pay attention. It’s time for this week’s Robot Round-Up!

Dead Harvest, by Chris F. HolmPrint-coverage appeared late last week of Chris F. Holm‘s forthcoming Dead Harvest: SFX Magazine reviewer Eddie Robson said: “the breakneck pace of the narrative, and the world Holm creates, make for a thrillingly brutal ride.” Four stars out of five (and it’s

Robot Round-Up, 10.02.12

Hello and welcome to this week’s (temporarily) minimalist version of the Robot Round-Up!

[Okay, so normally between us we take a bit of time to introduce the links, maybe extract a few choice quote-snippets, that sort of thing. But what with the SFX Weekender taking place last weekend and the inevitable post-Con lurgi taking its toll today (all together now: awwwwww, he’s got the man-flu!) I’ve just rolled two weeks’ worth of links up into a single post. And in order to save time, eyeball-strain and keyboard-wear, I’ve just gone with the basics. Your patience and understanding is most appreciated.

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…)

Welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up of what’s been happening in the AR-flavoured reaches of the Interwebs. Lots to tell you about again this week, so without further ado:

Empire State by Adam ChristopherJames Lovegrove reviewed Adam Christopher‘s Empire State for the Financial Times, saying: “If, somehow, Raymond Chandler and Philip K Dick had collaborated on a Superman story, they might well have produced this novel.” Plus: The Geek Syndicate cornered Adam last week at his UK Empire State launch at
