Angry Robot Live! #4 Recap

Last night was our fourth Angry Robot Live! We talked about Scope and Scale in Fantasy.

Our panelists were Kameron Hurley and Anna Kashina.

 

If you missed the live show, you can watch the whole thing here. Please note that you’ll want to turn up the volume for the first 23 or so minutes, as Kameron’s audio was soft until she switched over to a different mic.

Much fun was had by all!

 

During the panel, Kameron mentioned Universe Sandbox.

And this is me waving goodbye to dozens of

Angry Robot Live #4 – Scope and Scale in Fantasy

It’s that time again, folks – time for Angry Robot Live!

This month, we’re bringing you a discussion of Scope and Scale in Fantasy – from the intense back-alley tales of sword & sorcery to the world-breaking sagas of epic fantasy, the genre spans a huge range in terms of scope. Our panel will discuss the benefits and tradeoffs of operating at different scales, and we’ll dig into what makes tales at the different levels of scope powerful in their own ways.

The panel includes:

Kameron Hurley, Kitsschie and Sydney J. Bounds Award-winner and nominee for the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus

Robot Round-Up 28.06.13

What a busy few weeks it’s been here at Robot HQ; so busy in fact, that I’ve been shamefully slow since my last Round-Up! But what better to cheer up a rainy Friday (in Nottingham, at least) than a good look back over our recent highlights:

Robot Round-Up, 02.11.12

We’ve got a double-dose of Round-Up action for you this week, seeing as we didn’t quite manage to round anything up last week (our regular compiler-unit was sent on a top secret mission into SIBA-held territory on the Thursday night and as a direct consequence of its actions had to spend most of Friday in the repair bays, recuperating). Let’s kick off our fortnight’s worth of reviews, interviews and more with…

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!
