Angry Robot Live Returns!

That’s right folks, Angry Robot Live is back!

We’re resuming our series of live webcast panel discussions next week on Wednesday, April 15th at 8PM EDT/5PM PDT.

This time, we’ll be discussing Contemporary Fantasy, urban and otherwise. What kinds of stories can you tell in Contemporary Fantasy? Why is Contemporary Fantasy called Urban Fantasy now, and what is the difference? Where and how does Contemporary Fantasy overlap with Crime? Romance? Horror? How like or unlike the real world does Contemporary Fantasy need to be?

Our guests will be Alyc Helms, Ferrett Steinmetz, and Tim Waggoner.

Robot Round-Up, 14.09.12

Hello, hello and welcome to this week’s Robot Round-Up. Our compiler ‘bot lost his Internet connection for an hour this afternoon, just as he was making a start on this write-up.
