Robot Round-Up, 24.08.12

Hello, hello and welcome to another Robot Round-Up. We’re just days away from the US/CAN & Ebook release of three brand new titles: one eagerly-awaited mega-sequel, one likewise hugely-anticipated follow-up and one absolute blinder of a debut, if we do say so ourselves (which we most certainly do). So, let’s get on with the linkapalooza, shall we? Yes, let’s:

Mockingbird, by Chuck WendigChuck Wendig‘s second Miriam Black novel, Mockingbird, is so close now you

Hello, hello and welcome to another Robot Round-Up from your friendly, neighbourhood Robot Overlords. Just a few links for you this week, in contrast to last week’s fortnight’s worth, so there’s absolutely no excuse to miss any of them out, is there? Is there? No. We didn’t think so…

The Corpse-Rat King, by Lee BattersbyThere’s a short but exceedingly sweet review of Lee Battersby’s forthcoming fantasy debut The Corpse-Rat King (September 2012) from Zoe at Fantasy Bytes: “The Corpse Rat

Happy US/CAN & ebook Pub Day to Paul S. Kemp, Jo Anderton & Aliette de Bodard!

Our three brand new July 2012 books are officially published next Thursday, but as usual the distribution system in the US and Canada means that our North American editions are out a littler earlier. And the ebook editions are available from today, too.

All of which means that if you’re on the right side of the Atlantic, or if you’re nicely ereader-equipped, you can get your mitts (virtual or otherwise) on the following new books:

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:

Strangeness and Charm by Mike ShevdonMike Shevdon‘s recently-released Strangeness and

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:

Robot Round-Up, 20.04.12

Yet another week seems to have flown by in a frenzied flurry of furious activity here at Angry Robot’s Evil Lair. London Book Fair probably accounted for a big chunk of the general busy-ness, with Marco, Lee, Amanda and Emlyn all scouting for new meat-suit writing talent to conquer and assimilate. Back at HQ down in the in the deepest, dankest of our diverse dungeons, Darren has been accomplishing the re-vamp and re-launch of our webstore, in its new guise: The Robot Trading Company (he didn’t do the extremely smart and very shiny new logo, though – that was
