Welcome, welcome Robot minions!
Come, sit, drink a tea and check out the absolutely badass updated (and one new) covers we have for Madeline Ashby’s Machine Dynasty series. Each of these fine pieces of art can be credited to Martin Bland AKA Spyroteknik.

Hosted by our gregarious US Sales & Marketing Manager Mike Underwood, we learned some valuable lessons from this motley crew – namely, don’t ever ask Madeline Ashby about jetpacks or rush Wesley Chu in his scotch drinking. Watch and listen as they chat about instant communication, the scientific implausabilites of Prometheus, how they respectively became interested in SF, the social uses of SF, and much more. Thanks for everyone who joined in on the
