Hello, hello and welcome to what could, quite possibly, depending on how next week goes, be the last Robot Round-Up of 2012. If that does indeed turn out to be the case then rest assured that our compiler-bots we’ll save everything that comes in between now and the start of January for a bumper holiday season Round-Up early in the New Year. But right now, on with the links!

Hello, hello and welcome to another one of those-there Robot Round-Ups. We’ll start this week with:
Cassandra Rose Clarke‘s forthcoming science fiction romance The Mad Scientist’s Daughter (February 2013) was reviewed by Liam at The Troubled Scribe, who had this to say about it: “Readers and reviewers are going to absolutely love The

Hello, hello and welcome to a bumper, double-sized Robot Round-Up. Most of the AR crew was down at Fantasycon in Brighton last weekend, so we were a tad on the busy side – schmoozing, drinking, pontificating on panels, drinking, selling books, drinking and… well, drinking – so we’ve been saved everything up for a full fortnight’s worth (and then some) of AR linkage action. And here it is!
Today is the official publication day for three brand new Angry Robot books: Chris F. Holm‘s second Collector series novel, The Wrong Goodbye, David Tallerman‘s second Tale of Easie Damasco, Crown Thief, and the three-in-one omnibus edition of Maurice Broaddus‘s modern-day re-telling of the Arthurian myth-cycle, The Knights of Bretton Court.
UK residents rejoice! Those with a print preference can now dash on down to their favourite high-street bookstore and throw money at the booksellers in exchange for paperbacks. Happy day!
Today is US, Canada and ebook publication day for Angry Robot’s October titles (which will be available in UK bookstores from Thursday October 4th).
Our October line-up contains two fantastic sequels and a power-packed three-volume omnibus, in the form of Chris F. Holm‘s second Collector series novel The Wrong Goodbye, David Tallerman‘s second Tale of all-round rascal Easie Damasco, Crown Thief and that aforementioned omnibus edition Maurice Broaddus‘s extraordinary modern-day retelling of the Arthurian myth-cycle, The Knights of Breton Court.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to pick up a
Our October new releases will be unleashed on the world in just a couple of weeks’ time. Soon you’ll be able to head on down to your favourite bookstore (or make with the clicking on your favourite online retailer’s website) and grab a copy of The Wrong Goodbye by Chris F. Holm, Crown Thief by David Tallerman and the three-volume omnibus edition of The Knights of Breton Court by Maurice Broaddus. Once you have them safely in-hand (or on-reader) you can scamper off to your reading-cave and devour them without pause, snarling like a
Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up. Our compiler ‘bot lost his Internet connection for an hour this afternoon, just as he was making a start on this write-up. So seeing as he has at least one eye-module on the rapidly-approaching hour of beer o’clock, you’ll have to excuse him if he skips the intro and gets the heck on with it…
Hello, hello and welcome to another Robot Round-Up from your Robot Overlord chums. Can’t think of anything preambly this week, so without further ado, on with the links!
Hello, hello and welcome to another Robot Round-Up. We’ve got plenty of links to share this week, so let’s get to it:
Paul S. Kemp‘s blast of pure sword and sorcery goodness, The Hammer and the Blade is nearly upon us (next month!) and was reviewed this week by Paul (a different Paul…) at SciFi Bulletin, who said: “Kemp has a cinematic eye for detail; the final chase sequence
Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s regular round-up of angrily robotic goings-on from across the Interwebs. Your friendly, neighbourhood Robot Overlord chums have been sweltering in a UK heatwave all this week (well, apart from the Lee Unit, who started the week sweltering in a Tunisian heatwave, just to be different).
We’ve just about managed to divert enough power from the cooling systems to keep our AR-activity-detection circuits working reasonably well. Here’s the AR-activity that we’ve detected on the incoming channels as a result:
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
Hello, hello and welcome to our regular Robot Round-Up! We’ve got a treasure-trove of tasty links for you to peruse this week; the usual selection of reviews, interviews, guest posts and more, all involving our awesome Angry Robot Authors, plus one or two members of the AR crew.
So, without futher ado or kerfuffle:
Yet another week seems to have flown by in a frenzied flurry of furious activity here at Angry Robot’s Evil Lair. London Book Fair probably accounted for a big chunk of the general busy-ness, with Marco, Lee, Amanda and Emlyn all scouting for new meat-suit writing talent to conquer and assimilate. Back at HQ down in the in the deepest, dankest of our diverse dungeons, Darren has been accomplishing the re-vamp and re-launch of our webstore, in its new guise: The Robot Trading Company (he didn’t do the extremely smart and very shiny new logo, though – that was
