Angry Robot, Other people's business, Robot Round-Up

Robot Round-Up, 10.02.12

Hello and welcome to this week’s (temporarily) minimalist version of the Robot Round-Up!

[Okay, so normally between us we take a bit of time to introduce the links, maybe extract a few choice quote-snippets, that sort of thing. But what with the SFX Weekender taking place last weekend and the inevitable post-Con lurgi taking its toll today (all together now: awwwwww, he’s got the man-flu!) I’ve just rolled two weeks’ worth of links up into a single post. And in order to save time, eyeball-strain and keyboard-wear, I’ve just gone with the basics. Your patience and understanding is most appreciated.

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…)

Robot Round-Up, 13.01.12

Welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up of what’s been happening in the AR-flavoured reaches of the Interwebs. Lots to tell you about again this week, so without further ado:

Empire State by Adam ChristopherJames Lovegrove reviewed Adam Christopher‘s Empire State for the Financial Times, saying: “If, somehow, Raymond Chandler and Philip K Dick had collaborated on a Superman story, they might well have produced this novel.” Plus: The Geek Syndicate cornered Adam last week at his UK Empire State launch at

Robot Round-Up, 09.12.11

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..?

It’s been a busy, busy week in the Angry Robot themed bits of the Interwebs, so without further ado, here’s what we’ve spotted, bookmarked, earmarked or hypothetically scent-marked since our last round-up piece:
