Angry Robot Live!

By

Dear Robot Readers,

Mike Underwood, Sales & Marketing-o-Tron here with some cool news.

I love conventions – they’re a chance to bring together authors to discuss interesting, important, and/or irreverent topics in writing and cross-pollinate ideas and experiences. Not to mention the amazing, off-the-wall conversations that happen in the hallways, restaurants, and the bars. Especially the bars.

I’m also a podcaster, and a while back, I wanted to apply the fun of podcasting to my marketing work with Angry Robot and see if there was a way to bring some of the amazing convention-style conversations to readers around the world without having to shell out for a convention pass or a plane ticket. Which leads directly to…

Angry Robot Live.

Monday, April 28th, at 8:30PM EDT, I’m going to moderate a live Google+ discussion with four critically-acclaimed Angry Robot authors about 21st Century Science Fiction. Our panelists will be:

Madeline Ashby, John W. Campbell-nominated author of the Kitschie and Locus-nominated vN
Cassandra Rose Clarke, author of PKD-nominated The Mad Scientist’s Daughter
Ramez Naam, John W. Campbell-nominated author of the Promethus, Kitschie, and Arthur C. Clarke-nominated Nexus, and the Prometheus-nominated Crux
Wesley Chu, John W. Campbell-nominated author of the Alex Award-winning The Lives of Tao.

If you have questions about Science Fiction or any of these authors works that you’d like me to ask at the panel, please comment below. And be on the lookout for the link to join the discussion live on Monday the 28th!

For those who won’t be able to attend live, we’ll record the panel to be uploaded to YouTube, as well as archiving it on Google+ for viewing long into the 21st Century.

 

UPDATED: RSVP here for a chance at book giveaways!

We’ll be sorry to miss you, Paul. But if you have questions you’d like me to ask, please feel free to let me know, so you can be there in part. :)

Mike, it might be helpful if you post the link to the hangout; I assume it’s coming off of you account but still might help to clarify.

Joe,

Good call. I’ve included a link to the Google+ event for RSVPs.

ihate_00 — I hope you’ll be able to make it! If you think you won’t, but want to ask a question, leave it here and I’ll put it into the queue.

-Mike
