Angry Robot Authors: Where to Find them in 2015

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.

So that’s why we’re all over the place this year at various conventions, exhibitions and festivals. Below is a list of where the we’ll be throughout 2015, so if you want to pop down and say hi, or you’re in the

Robot Round-Up, 14.12.12

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.

A Very Happy Publication Week to Madeline Ashby and Gav Thorpe!

We have two brand new books officially published this week. And for once the usual quirks in the US vs UK distribution systems have almost coincided, which means that the official US/CAN print and Worldwide Ebook publication day (today!) is only 48 hours in advance of the official UK/EU print publication day (Thursday!)

The two brand new books in question are (drumroll please!)

Debris, by Jo AndertonJo Anderton‘s Debris made it into Library Journal‘s Top 10 SF/F of 2011 list, along with the comment: “An accomplished debut reminiscent of the visionary works of China Miéville.”

Debris was also reviewed at Dragonpage.com, where reviewer Laith Preston said: “I would highly recommend Debris
