Robot Round-Up, 05.10.12

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!

Robot Round-Up, 14.09.12

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…

Congratulations to Sidewise Award Nominee Lavie Tidhar!

Camera Obscura by Lavie TidharLavie Tidhar has been shortlisted for another award! This time though, it isn’t for his much talked-about Osama, but our very own Camera Obscura, which has been nominated for this year’s Sidewise Award for ‘Best Long-Form Alternate History’.

Robot Round-Up, 08.06.12

Hello, hello and welcome to another of our regular Robot Round-Up link-a-thons. It’s been a short week here in the Angry Robot UK HQ, thanks to QEII’s diamond jubilee and the associated double bank-holiday. But that hasn’t stopped our authors from doing their thing, nor the massed ranks of reviewers who have been taking a look at an impressive selection of Angry Robot books this week. So, without further ado or digression:

Ebooks, Arrrrrrr!There’s a lot of talk about eBook piracy at the moment. And there are all sorts of reasons. Some of
