Angry Robot, Author Appearances

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, 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…)

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to the latest Angry Robot Links round-up. It’s been another busy, busy week on the Interwebs, so without further palaver and to-do:

SFBook.com have announced the shortlist for their SFBook of the Year 2011 poll and two of those titles are ours: Dan Abnett‘s Embedded and Maurice Broaddus‘s King’s War. Both brilliant books, of course, and both deserving of at least few hundred more votes, we reckon. >cough< You’re still here..?
