So, without further ado or digression:

Robot Round-Up, 25.05.12

Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s regular round-up of angrily robotic goings-on from across the Interwebs. Your friendly, neighbourhood Robot Overlord chums have been sweltering in a UK heatwave all this week (well, apart from the Lee Unit, who started the week sweltering in a Tunisian heatwave, just to be different).

We’ve just about managed to divert enough power from the cooling systems to keep our AR-activity-detection circuits working reasonably well. Here’s the AR-activity that we’ve detected on the incoming channels as a result:

Free Samples of Every Angry Robot Book

We don’t always blow our own trumpet, so having spent a few, slightly tedious hours on a very hot day assembling the latest batch of samplers of some upcoming Angry Robot titles, we thought it worth reminding all you deeply lovely AR readers that we do, as standard, offer a free excerpt from every single one of our books.

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

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.
