Robot Round-Up 28.06.13

Posted by: | Comments (0)

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:

Let’s start with yesterday’s exciting news that Michael Boatman has become the latest AR author! If you missed the release, check out Lee’s announcement here. Click through for all the info on Michael, his titles Last God Standing and Who Wants to be the Prince of Darkness?

This month we’ve released two titles: Madeline Ashby‘s superb sequel to vN, iD, and also Paul S. Kemp‘s second outing with Egil and Nix, A Discourse in Steel. Here’s the big splash from launch day;  since then, they’ve both been kept in a dungeon, slaves to their computers busy with blog posts, interviews, and also kept happy with rave reviews. To wit:

iD by Madeline Ashby• Bibliotropic Review on Madeline’s iD: “Ashby has a wonderful imagination, an eye for detail, and characters that I don’t want to part from. From the beginning of the first book to the end of the second, I was hooked, and I’m eagerly looking forward to anything that Ashby does in the future.”

“It really is a modern I, Robot, but with a lot more grit, moral depth, and more interesting prose. Madeline Ashby ought to be seen as one of the big new names in science fiction.” Hardcover Wonderland

• Madeline’s blog tour featured interviews and blog posts, and she’s a rare beast that always manages to say something fresh and new with each stop:
• Madeline speaks out on the SFWA Scandal on Dark Matter Fanzine in a piece brilliantly entitled, ‘Stalin, Playboy, and Lady Writers’; talks to Civilian Reader about how to make Non-Humans Seem Human; 
• John Scalzi featured Madeline on Whatever‘s The Big Idea, and it’s a moving read: on facing fears, on telling the universe “to fuck right off and die”, and about living through the impossible. Read it.
• A Fantastical Librarian and My Bookish Ways have great interviews with Madeline, as does The Qwillery whilst Madeline faced up to Ten Questions About iD with Chuck Wendig, and My Shelf Confessions was lucky enough to nab Javier for a chat!
• Cheryl Morgan recently met up with Madeline and they sat down to discuss iD, and how Madeline uses robots to ask interesting questions about gender.
• SFSignal featured vN for a recent review and had this to say: “Unrelenting and surprising conflict drives a fast-paced read; genuine, human-robot dystopia; powerful character arcs; evokes series addiction.” If you haven’t already read vN, get it and you might as well get iD at the same time…I doubt you’ll want to wait between books!

A Discourse In Steel by Paul S. Kemp• Last night Paul took part in an AMA on Reddit and go there to see what kinds of dirt they had him dish up!
• The fantastic cover, by Lee Gibbons, rightly gathered attention pre-launch, such as on Graeme’s SFF
• “Kemp gives us a great fast paced romp packed with action and with enough char­ac­ter and world build­ing to sat­isfy with­out slow­ing any­thing down.” I agree, Eoghann.com! And check out these other amazing reviews:
• “This is adventure fantasy at its finest…Kemp is a superb writer.  If you enjoy sword and sorcery, adventure, and nonstop action, this is the book for you.” Adventures Fantastic

The Founding Fields: “Egil and Nix back once again kicking serious ass in this sequel”

• Silver Pen Scribe: “enjoyable ride of pure fun fantasy.”
• Being A Big Sandwich: It is in the characters, particularly Egil and Nix, that Kemp shines and draws the reader in…The interplay between the two is well-done, and their friendship is the bedrock of the story.”
• Kobold Press: “This book has all the elements that fans of sword and sorcery should enjoy…The characters are deep and fun to get to know, the story is interesting, and the action is top shelf.”
• Odd Engine: “filled with new magic and mayhem that makes it a truly enjoyable read.”
• Mikel Andrews: ”This is the fantasy you’ve been craving.. If you’ve been dying for some real originality in the fantasy realm – with a scene of revenge that would make even Kick-Ass’ Hit Girl do a double-take – then Discourse in Steel is your next stop.”

Three, by Jay Posey, artwork by Stephen Mayer-RassowA forthcoming title that is receiving a lot of attention – and do stay tuned for Jay’s impressive blog tour and a cool tour competition – is Three, the debut by renowned games writer Jay Posey. Take a look at some of these couple of early reviews:

• The Book Plank: “Three is a great start into a new series. The post-apocalyptic world that Jay Posey created in Three is brilliantly constructed, it’s just chock-full of the cool stuff, futuristic gadgets (guns and the like), augmented people and not forget the Weir.”
• Book Realms: “The book has the hard-edged, gritty feel of postapocalyptic fiction. The dialog is terse; the action sequences pound along. But don’t think you’ve escaped into a world without tenderness. It’s there, even if in some cases its encased in armor and eclipsed by the need to survive.”
• If I could only show you the early reviews that haven’t been published yet…but not long now! Three, the first title in the Legends of the Duskwalker series is out in the US & ebook on 30 July and in the UK and RoW on 1 August.

The Big Reap by Chris F. Holm, design by Amazing15Our other August release is Chris F. Holm‘s third instalment in the Collector SeriesThe Big Reap, and take a look at some of the exciting pre-release reviews:

• Book Snobbery: “The Big Reap is the most ambitious of Holm’s Collector stories so far, and the payoff at the end is huge.  HUGE”
• Tolerably Smart: “Book Three was a game changer much to my enjoyment”
• Raging Biblioholism: “Smart, funny and unassuming… Our world is a better place with Sam Thornton in it.”
• Every Read Thing: “Sam is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters. While he carries with him the attitude of a blockbuster movie action star, he’s also a tragic character at heart. In my opinion, this is Holm’s finest work yet.”

Any Other Name by Emma Newman, Artwork by Sarah J. ColemanThe tireless Emma Newman and her Split Worlds books continue to leave reviewers and readers alike feeling all kinds of happy; take a look at these:

A Fantastical Librarian: “I think I loved Any Other Name even more than Between Two Thorns, if that’s possible. [Any Other Name is] engaging, funny, romantic, and imaginative and placed Emma Newman solidly on my must-read list of writers. I can’t wait for the conclusion to this story in October, when All is Fair is released. In the meantime, I think I’ll go and reread some of the short stories set in the Split Worlds.”

Thoughts from the Hearthfire “Emma Newman definitely knows what she is doing…In short, great characters, fabulous settings, complex plots, resolved threads within each book with plenty to arc across titles as well. I wholeheartedly recommend it!”

Kindle-aholic’s Book Pile made me giggle with this one – it’s so true: “You know you are getting into a book when you want to pull characters aside for a little chat. Will, you are an idiot. An idiot with good intentions, but you pissed me the hell off. Max, you need to listen to your gargoyle more. Mr. Sorcerer – there is something so very off about you. I feel some good bits of secrets spilling in book 3. I gave up sleep to finish this book and was very glad I did.”
• And if you want to read more about Emma, check out this SFX interview! Don’t forget that Emma also has some really fun stuff on her website. You can sign up for free Split Worlds short stories. Also, there is her Three Wishes campaign, as well as her new podcasts, Tea and Jeopardy. Emma’s now up to Podcast 6 which is with Karina Cooper; previous hostages guests have included Chuck Wendig, Sarah Pinborough, Paul Cornell, Jennifer Udden, and Dave Bradley. So, grab yourself a mug of tea and settle down with Emma for some mild peril!

The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuMike, our fantastic North American Sales & Marketing Manager, and I had a great chat with Wesley Chu this week about all things The Deaths of Tao; for everyone anxiously awaiting the next instalment of Roen and Tao’s adventures… T-minus 4 months! To those who haven’t yet read The Lives of Tao, check out these reviews and prey tell me, how you’ve missed this summer blockbuster?

• Fantasy Book Review: “The Lives of Tao is a fun book with a lot of energy and it really worked for me. Full of action, adventure, martial arts, gunplay, and large quantities of geeky goodness.”
• Sarah Says Read joins the now-squadron-sized army of those who all “want a Prophus alien living in my brain!” She loved it so much, there are bullet points to describe how (which I love!) but the summary says it all: “You guys, this book was just AWESOME. I literally don’t have a single complaint about it. It was an action-packed, fun-filled joy ride and I can’t wait to see what’s next in store for Roen and Tao.”
Not a Natural Writer is certainly a Natural Reader and has this to say on The Lives of Tao: “The writing style is very easy to get into, and the story moves along at a fair old lick. The actions scenes in particular are very well crafted, with a great sense of motion, excitement and tension.”

My Bookish Ways: “It certainly makes me think that there might something in all of us that can make us great (even if it’s not an alien being), and it’s Roen’s humility, and yes, bravery, in the midst of a very extreme chain of events that makes this book what it is: one of the freshest, most fun debuts I’ve read in quite a while! I can’t wait to find out what’s next for Roen and Tao!”

Vinx Books: “There’s a dash of romance, plenty of action and the plot carries you along but with nice variations in pace so it isn’t all go go go. It is all combined very well and I really appreciate that the violence is not romanticised or gratuitous. Roen’s reactions to the fighting is very human and I think brings a moment of contemplation.”
• Tiffy Fit: “imaginative, enjoyable, wondrous. ”

And if you’re not all Chu-ed out with those rave reviews, check out what the great man himself has to say:

The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig, Art by Joey Hi-FiChuck Wendig continues to own the internet, largely because he’s too scary to stop*, but hey, it works out well for our books. Take a look at all of this goodness:

• “Wendig’s filthy dialogue and layered characters mean that it’s never less than raucously entertaining.” SFX, August 2013
• Book Chick City: “The Blue Blazes is one hell of a read, with a complex cast of morally grey characters. It’s a heart-stopping ride from beginning to end. I think it is my stand out book of the year so far.”
The Tattooed Book: “With superbly vivid characters, ballsy action and a ton of twists and turns Chuck Wendig hits home with another all round enjoyable novel.”
The Qwillery: “If you are looking for something well written and verging towards horror, then I urge you to read The Blue Blazes. I would advise not to read too close to bedtime, however, without checking under the bed a few times first!”
Fangs for the Fantasy: “This book is stylistically excellent. It’s thematically excellent. The writing is amazing. The characterisation is awesome. The world is incredible.”

All Things Urban Fantasy: “Think Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere written as a mob book…I’m kicking myself for not checking out Wendig’s work before now. Don’t make the same mistake I did.”

• My Bookish Ways: “The Blue Blazes is something very different, very twisted and very, very good. You’ll have lots of fun-I know I did!”
• With a shout-0ut to the fantastic Joey Hi-Fi cover, CheffoJeffo also says: “A Rollicking, Riotous Rampage…The Blue Blazes is the most fun I have had in years.”

For Chuck’s dulcet tones, here’s some handy interview links:

• Interview with Mahvesh Murad on CityFM89
• Podcast with NerdStravagana
• Eric Christensen

If you live, or will be, in Brooklyn on July 17, be sure to call to Word and see Chuck with Strange Chemistry author T.L. Costa as they consider the current state of speculative fiction, in both YA and adult. There’ll also be a signing and a Q&A.

You’d think that would be enough of our authors working on taking over the world, but nope, we’ve got all of these who have also been busy…and that’s the way we like them:

The Eighth Court by Mike Shevdon, cover art by John CoulthartMike Shevdon‘s series, The Courts of the Feyre, comes to a conclusion with The Eighth Court, and the mighty Tim Ward at SFSignal has this to say: “Fascinating magic; powerful and scheming villains; engaging and surprising mystery; epic conflict; dramatic and sympathetic conclusion to character arcs.”

• No More Grumpy Bookseller: “The Courts of the Feyre series is a win in every way in my humble opinion – the world, the characters, the stories, the setting, the history…it’s been a wild and crazy entertaining ride!”

The Bookman Histories omnibus, by Lavie Tidhar - artwork by John Coulthart• Lavie Tidhar‘s Omnibus collection of The Bookman Histories was released earlier in the year and Black Gate certainly recommend buying up this trilogy: “this is a guy who is clearly going places. Ignore him at your peril.” The Bookman Histories contains The BookmanCamera Obscura, and The Great Game and is available in the US and ebook.

Ramez Naam We’re fast approaching publication date for Ramez Naam‘s follow-up to NexusCrux, and here’s an early review from the IEET: “I advise readers to start with Nexus, but then to pick right up with Crux. Both books are excellent, thoughtful, and fast-paced. They are worth your time, and will leave you thinking hard about some core future questions.”

With the excitement building up towards the release of Crux, we were delighted to announce we’ve signed Ramez up for a third book, which will be released in late 2014, and here’s LitStack reporting on the deal.

Empire State by Adam ChristopherThe Age Atomic, by Adam Christopher, art & design by Will StaehleIf Reggie Lutz had this to say about Empire State: ” He makes the reader feel that we understand and recognize the place we are in the fiction…which makes the plot complications and world-instability issues contained therein all the more effective.” and Fantasy Faction say this about The Age Atomic: “[Since Empire StateAdam Christopher has grown as a writer and the growth shines through here, his prose has become stronger, his characters more real; his ideas, settings and themes bright and full of depth…he’s grown to a stylish and exciting writer, with ideas that are full of adventure and mystery.”, how damn good does that make both Empire State and The Age Atomic!

And on that note, I’m outta here – well as far as the café for lunch, but you know what I mean.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Caroline

Robot Round-Up 17.05.13

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Gather round drones, and check out what has been amazing couple of weeks for all things robotic and brilliant…actually makes us a little bit less angry, but don’t worry as it won’t last. Prepare yourselves…it’s a long ‘un.

vN by Madeline Ashby, cover Martin Bland/Spyroteknik

I think it’s only right that we start off with the great news from the US, that Angry Robot has been shortlisted at the Locus Awards for Best Publisher. Not only that but Madeline Ashby‘s vN has been shortlisted in the Best First Fiction category, and fellow Angry Robot author Aliette de Bodard is up for Best Novella and Best Short Story! Couldn’t be better timing with Book Two in the Machine Dynasty, iD, coming very shortly! Check out Lee’s post on this good news.

 

 

The Lives of Tao by Wesley ChuWesley Chu continues to take the world by storm with Tao & Roen in The Lives of Tao with reviews, interviews, and blog posts popping up left, right, and centre.

Reviews:

Normal in London loved the book: “There are comic moments, there are tender moments and there are moments where I wondered what I would do if I had an alien inside me, and moments where I wished I did as it might push me into doing stuff! The climax was especially strong, and somewhat unexpected. And it has left me wanting more Roen & Tao.” There’s definitely a business opportunity for Wes if he can provide aliens for all the reviewers looking for their own Tao!
Dangerous Dan awards Tao “four easy stars”  believing the “ending[…]was perfect for the story and left it open-ended enough for future adventures of Roen and Tao.”
Always Unmended don’t just focus on the fact that “Chu’s writing is strong, and his ability to write tragic, heart-rending scenes into such a fun, easy story is proof that he’s found his calling as a writer” but also believe we can all learn something from Roen: [the book] “contains inspirational advice that is bound to make readers reflect on their own lives. There is much about being the person you want to be and not making excuses to let yourself fail. Much as the practice of Tao is The Way of life, the character of Tao shows Roen the way to live fully. And isn’t that something we could all use a little help with?” Now. Go out there and live your live…after the pizza dinner, it is Friday evening after all.
• For a review with a spin, check out Richard’s rhyming review; I can’t even pull a line from it, it needs to be read in whole…what are you waiting for? Shooo!
• Feathers & Tea get their review off to a great start, calling Chu’s debut “another triumph from the Angry Robot publishing stable”, why thank you! It continues thusly: “Chu’s writing is sparingly skillful [and the] key premise is novel and handled deftly, the transition of Roen from bumbler to Commander is a joy to read, and the book is as laced with humour and flashes of poignancy as it is with action scenes”
• The Lives of Tao has even managed to impress the self-proclaimed cross-genre wary 42 Webs! “The Lives of Tao is one of those good books that pulls off the mash-up perfectly.  We get the full sci-fi feeling combined with the spy genre without either side getting diluted or ignored.  We get the full effect and in turn get a character we care about.  Roen becomes the mix between James Bond and Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin Creed 2, Brotherhood, Revelations).”
The Author - Wesley Chu• “The most fun I’ve had all year” Staffer’s Book Review
• Mike over on Stuff and/or Junk calls Roen & Tao “a sci-fi action Odd Couple” – I think the most apt description I’ve heard yet!
• Wes & the Prophus’ global domination continues with i109 proclaiming The Lives of Tao one of the Astounding Summer Reads!
• The Lives of Tao is “top notch entertainment” and “the perfect summer read” The Eloquent Page
• The wonderful 52 Book Reviews allow no excuses for anyone not reading Chu’s amazing debut: “Chu’s cunning and hilarious mash-up of comedy, coming of age drama, espionage thriller, and science fiction has something for everyone.”
Matthew Scott Baker is very excited about Tao! It’s “very clever with fun/deadly characters and a high-paced plot. Be ready to drop your social life for a few days, though…you will definitely want to use your free time finishing this one up!”
Bandelier Girl Reads Everything is short and sweet with Tao: “A nice mash-up of genres that moves the reader thru the story with humor and interesting characters. Recommend.”

Blog Posts/Interviews:

• Wes has been interviewed on many a website, and get yourself over to Toonari PostSci-Fi Fan Letter, and Bastard Books…for a mammoth, brilliant, read which also includes a giveaway!
• Check out Stellar Four for Roen’s drink of choice, and Wes talks about Aliens on Dribble of Ink.
• Wes had a guest post with Mary Robinette Kowal which you can catch here

Events:

• Wes has also been busy with some fun & games and with the coolest cake ever, launched The Lives of Tao in Chicago. Take a look at the photos on Wes’ Facebook page
• If you’re in Chicago – or will be – on May 19, you can catch Wes on a panel at Open Books: 213 W. Institute Place Chicago, IL 60610 (1 block north of Chicago & Franklin el stop.) See the Open Books Website for further details.
• If you can’t make Chicago, Wes will be at WisCon May 24-27, on 4 panels no less, and for more info: check it out here
• And if Tao & Roen hadn’t provided Wes with enough to celebrate, didn’t he only go and win the April Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars over at The Qwillery! Thanks again to Argh! Oxford for the great cover! Here’s an interview The Qwillery also did with him.

The Age Atomic, by Adam Christopher, art & design by Will Staehle

• Adam Christopher‘s The Age Atomic has a very cool video review over on I’m Ellie Ann
• Paper Mages is putting future reading trust in the hands of Adam, a very wise move, whilst also praising Christopher’s dynamic characters!
• Listen in to Adam’s radio i/v on City FM 89 here
• And, it might be belated posting on my behalf, but check out the Bane of Kings review over on The Founding Fields: “A wonderful novel, The Age Atomic proves that Adam Christopher can write sequels just as well as anyone. The most fun read of 2013 so far, and one of the best.”

Between Two Thorns by Emma Newman, March 2013Any Other Name by Emma Newman, Artwork by Sarah J. ColemanThe wonderful Emma Newman has had the internet all a flutter between reviews for Between Two Thorns, advance talk on Any Other Name, the wonderful Three Wishes, and also her new podcast, Tea & Jeopardy!

Reviews for Between Two Thorns & Any Other Name:

• “JK Rowling meets Georgette Heyer ” so say the Guardian along with praising how Emma “renders the Split Worlds with verve and an infectious sense of fun, and presents in Cathy a strong and personable heroine.” Get in, Between Two Thorns!
• “Between Two Thorns is in essence a mystery, with a dash of magic, suspense and intrigue combining with just a touch of romance, polictics and feminism to freshen it up a bit” Boy, do Vinx Books love Between Two Thorns! Vinx also highlights Em’s amazing short stories based in The Split Worlds, and the Three Wishes, thanks Vinx!
• Uncorked Thoughts give Between Two Thorns 4 out of 5 stars, and declare the “story…an Austinesque fantasy, filling every chapter with action. I loved learning about this new world and am looking forward to sinking my teeth into the next book!” You don’t have long to wait, Leah!
• A Writer’s Sidequest is another eagerly anticipating the release of Any Other Name, having fallen in love with Between Two Thorns!
• 5 out of 5 stars. Why, thank you very much Geek Syndicate. “A word of warning, make sure it is somewhere comfortable though as once you start this magical book, you won’t be going anywhere until you finish it. Absolutely brilliant.” Just one of the many excellent proclamations from them, and rightly so!
• Here’s a review for the forthcoming Any Other Name from My Dear Bibliophage who call it “enchanting, shocking, and well-crafted”

The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig, Art by Joey Hi-FiBlackbirds, by Chuck WendigChuck has kept the web busy with both Mookie Pearl and Miriam Black:

The Blue Blazes:

• For something “dark, gritty and fun” Three Crow Press recommend Chuck‘s first Mookie Pearl novel, The Blue Blazes. True that.
• “Wendig has taken the cast of Goodfellas and dragged them, kicking and screaming into a fantasy reality of New York, opened up the playground and let them run loose”, so says Wilder’s Book Review, who continues: “The dialogue is crisp and flows quickly, with a dark humour which Wendig relishes throughout…It’s a style which Wendig is well-known for and as my first Chuck Wendig novel, I found it to be a real breath of fresh air in a subgenre which sometimes feels a little stuffy and manufactured.”
• Odd Engine  starts a glowing 4 star review with a shout-out to Joey Hi-Fi for the amazing cover, and continues by praising the “punchy dialog, snappy prose, and a gritty narrative voice”, calling The Blue Blazes “inventive, edgy, and a joy to read”
Elf Machines from Hyperspace (what a cool name, and you’re welcome for the ARC!) after one book has declared Chuck’s writing “imaginative, funny, profound, tough, and poetic all at once” and they ain’t wrong!

Blackbirds:

Blackbirds is “a bit fucking wrong” (a quote courtesy of Miss BookCunt) which for PublishThings sums up the second Miriam Black novel perfectly!
The Cheape Book links Blackbirds with the perfect director: “This book begs to be done as a movie by Tarantino if he hasn’t already” Are ya listening, Quentin?

Finally, The 52 Review has a great interview with Mr Wendig, and if you’re an aspiring writer you definitely want to check out when he says about finding your own voice

A Discourse In Steel by Paul S. KempThe Hammer and the Blade, by Paul S KempWith good timing as A Discourse in Steel‘s publication date (25 June / 4 July) is fast approaching, Geeks versus Nerds are talking all things Paul S. Kemp and The Hammer and the Blade: “This book is wonderful, funny and exciting with a pinch of spine shivering evil added in for flavor.”

 

 

The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke - Feb 2013

 

The beautiful story that is Cassandra Rose Clarke‘s The Mad Scientist’s Daughter has certainly made an impression on ScienceFiction.com, who call it a “fantastically written science fiction novel about love and society”.

 

 

 

 

The Age Atomic, by Adam Christopher, art & design by Will StaehleAs previously announced, Adam Christopher will be launching The Age Atomic at Forbidden Planet in London, this coming Thursday (4th April) at 6pm. Pick up a copy of the paperback, or treat yourself to the highly-collectible limited edition hardback (100 copies, only) of Empire State or The Age Atomic!

We hope to see you there!

Black Feathers by Joseph D'Lacey, April 2013The following evening (Friday 5th April), from 6.30pm at the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green, London, Joseph D’Lacey will be signing copies of his first Angry Robot book, Black Feathers.

Joseph had his first signing at Blackwells, Edinburgh, this last weekend, and it was standing room only! Be sure, then, to get to Big Green in plenty of time (and sample their other wares – they’re a fabulous indie book shop).

SFX says of Black Feathers:

It’s an involving, well-told tale… at the heart is a black, thin-feathered phantom with a legitimately frightening name: the Crowman.

If you can’t make the signing (and you should – Joseph’s a great reader, and excellent with a pen!) you can pre-order signed copies here.

Signed copies of Adam’s books can also be pre-ordered.
This link for The Age Atomic paperback, this for the limited edition hardback, and this for the Empire State limited edition hardback (ignore the incorrect date on the Empire State page).

And some other fine folk have said some great things about Black Feathers, too:

“Sometimes… a book captures your imagination in a way that it takes residence in your brain, and the more you think about it, the more special it becomes. That’s Black Feathers.”
And Then I Read a Book

“A bold beginning to a new duology from the brilliant D’Lacey. Two children embark on a search for meaning that is riddled with ambiguity about the nature of the saviour they seek and which, ultimately, provides a siren call to live in harmony with the land.”
Alison Littlewood, author of A Cold Season

Black Feathers is poetic and compelling. It’s a gripping story crafted around a deep core of eloquent anger. And it’s scary – it’s the scariest kind of fiction – the kind of fiction that rings true. D’Lacey has written a great book of and for our troubled times.”
– Tom Fletcher, author of The Leaping

“Dreadfully visionary. Appallingly inspired. One could wear out a thesaurus trying to articulate the singular fusion of qualities that has come to define Joseph D’Lacey’s work. Alternately (and sometimes simultaneously) horrifying, mesmerizing, shocking, unsettling, and beautiful, and always deeply intelligent, it’s utterly unlike anything else I’m aware of. It’s also utterly wonderful.”
– Matt Cardin, author of To Rouse Leviathan and Dark Awakenings

“Spectacular is the word I’d use to describe [Black Feathers]. Nothing else can capture the reading experience.”
– Shadowhawk at The Founding Fields

“I really did love this book, as it had everything I was looking for and more, and really redefined the genres of fantasy and dystopian fiction. I know the two genres have been merged before, but this book just had that special un-put-down-able spark I couldn’t resist.”
– Rebecca at Book Chick City

“Read it. If, like me, you feel like you’ve read every post-apocalyptic book out there, you haven’t. Black Feathers is something different, with a new take on the end of the world.”

EasterCon – Meet the authors

Posted by: | Comments (0)

This coming weekend is EasterCon weekend. It is also Easter weekend. A happy little coincidence, there.

You’ll find various Angry Robot folk at the convention, and when they’re not in the bar, they’ll be at the following panels/panel games (Angry Robot bods highlighted):

FRIDAY 29th March

4pm – 5pm – Superheroes on Film
Faster than a speeding bullet, superheroes have escaped from comics to films and found a whole new audience!

5pm – 6pm – PS Publishing
Yorkshire’s very own specialist publisher gets Eastercon underway with an event to launch new books by five of the UK’s leading SF and Fantasy writers. “Universes” by Stephen Baxter. “Starship Seasons” by Eric Brown.

9pm – 10pm – Graphic Novel Selections
It’s easy to miss good comics these days, with so much going past. Our panel recommend some personal favourites from all areas of the medium. With Stephen Aryan, CE Murphy, Alys Sterling and David Tallerman.

SATURDAY 30th March

11am – 12.00 noon- The Stories in Games
Narrative games require stories to work, whether they are tabletop RPGs, LARPs or computer game. How do these stories differ from those in books and films? And how do you fix them when the encounter the enemy (or “player”)? Mike Cule moderates Ian McKenna, Emma Newman, Marcus Rowland and Adrian Tchaikovsky.

12 noon – 1pm – Non-Western SF and Fantasy
Anglophone writers and books by westerners still dominate the bookshelves, but Japan, China and India (to take three examples) also have thriving sff traditions.

10am – 11am- Maiden, Mother, Who? Older women in genre fiction.

11am – 12 noon – Why is the Future Drawn so White?
When the protagonist of Justine Larbalastier’s Liar was whitewashed in the cover art, both the author and the internet were outraged and the cover was eventually changed. Yet characters of colour are still all too often absent or elided. How can we work to challenge this and why does it happen? Caroline Hooton moderates Dev Agarwal, Aliette de Bodard, CE Murphy, Tajinder Singh Hayer and Stephanie Saulter.

The Age Atomic, by Adam Christopher, art & design by Will StaehleApril 4th is the publication date of Adam Christopher‘s brand new novel The Age Atomic; the power-packed sequel to Adam’s terrific 2012 debut Empire State.

Adam will be reading from and signing copies of The Age Atomic at the launch event hosted by Forbidden Planet Megastore on Shaftesbury Avenue in London, from 6.00 – 7.00 p.m. on Thursday 4th April.

As well as the standard paperback, book launch attendees will also have the opportunity to buy a copy or two of the Forbidden Planet exclusive limited edition hardcover edition of The Age Atomic; a genuine collectors’ item, of which only a hundred copies are being printed.

But wait, there’s more! We’re also printing a Forbidden Planet Exclusive limited edition hardcover of Empire State as well. And there are rumours surfacing that this one might have a variant cover…

Both hardbacks are priced at £20.00 and Adam will be delighted to sign them for you on the night. See forbiddenplanet.com for all the pertinent details, and if you’re going to be attending you can tell the world about it via the Age Atomic Launch Facebook page.

This is Horror Black Feathers launch posterApril 4th is the official publication date of Joseph D’Lacey‘s brand new post-eco-apocalyptic dark fantasy Black Feathers and Joseph is marking the occasion with two launch events in the week leading up to publication.

The first of these is the Edinburgh Launch, in association with This is Horror and Blackwells Edinburgh South Bridge on Saturday 30th March. The event, which runs from 3.00 – 5.00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, is a triple horror author show with Joseph’s fellow Angry Roboteer Gary McMahon, plus zombie godfather David Moody, hosted by Jasper Bark.

We’re reliably informed that all seated tickets for the event have been sold already, but more have been made available if you don’t mind standing up for the duration. Please e-mail events.edinburgh@blackwell.co.uk with the subject line ‘This Is Horror Event’ or call 0131 622 8218 for your free ticket.

If you can’t make it up to Scotland, then perhaps the London Launch at the Big Green Bookshop in Wood Green, London, on Friday 5th April would be the one to aim for.

The event will run from 6.30 to 9.00 p.m. on a feel-free-to-drop-in-and-say-hello basis (but make sure you drop in at 6.30 or you’ll miss Joseph’s reading from Black Feathers) with snacks and drinks provided. All very civilised, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Send an email to enquiries@biggreenbookshop.com or call them on 020 8881 6767 if you need more information about the London launch.

The Marching Dead by Lee Battersby, April 2013Angry Robot’s very own Lee Battersby will be launching The Marching Dead – the second Marius don Hellespont novel, sequel to The Corpse-Rat King – at Stefen’s Books, 8 Shaftoe Lane, Perth, on Saturday 6th April at 2.00 p.m.

Here are the pertinent details from the man himself:

“I’ll be signing copies, inflicting a reading or two upon the gathered multitudes, and generally making with the fabulous author dahlink behaviour – kissing babies, shaking hands with dogs, molesting livestock… not to mention a cavalcade of entertainment like dancing girls, bear-baiting, midget death-trap wrestling and arbalest surfing, and then we’ll finish it all off by heading over the lane to local alehouse The Generous Squire, where Stefen has set aside an area especially for general mingling and the quaffing of hearty ales.

“Come on down, introduce yourself, grab a signed copy of The Marching Dead or The Corpse-Rat King if you’re the kind of lazy layabout who hasn’t read it yet, and generally hang out with us and have a good old nattery, beery, Saturday afternoon you know you’ve earned.

“What could be better?”

Honestly, we can’t think of many things that could. Alas, we Robots will be Angrily stuck back in the UK, but we’ll be raising a flagon or two of our own at a suitable juncture. If you’re a bit closer-to than we are, head on down to Stefen’s on the day and help make the afternoon one to remember.

That’s right – the only place to get this story is at one of the two launches. This is sure to become a collectors’ item!

Additionally, one lucky attendee at each launch will find a Golden Ticket* in their envelope, winning them a copy of Book 2 – Any Other Name – weeks before it is published in June.

The Author - Wesley ChuAngry Robot Author Wesley Chu, author of the soon-to-be-published science fiction secret agent extravaganza The Lives of Tao, will be appearing alongside a few fellow Chicago-based science fiction writers at Open Books on Thursday February 28th.

The occasion is the launch of Chicago Writers Conference Events at Open Books. The series kicks off with this particular evening of Science Fiction readings hosted by Hugo and Nebula Award–nominated author William Shunn. Wesley will be reading from The Lives of Tao and will be happy to answer questions about the book, or being a writer, or his life as a kung-fu stuntman. (You think we’re kidding about that last part, don’t you? We’re really not…)

It’s a free event, open to all, and runs from 6.30 to 9.00 p.m. Open Books, “an award-winning nonprofit social venture that operates an extraordinary bookstore, provides community programs, and mobilizes passionate volunteers to promote literacy in Chicago and beyond”, can be found at:

No More Balloons

Posted by: | Comments (2)

341793_popped_balloon_3So, here’s the thing.

We had planned to have a balloon race to celebrate the launch of Emma Newman’s Between Two Thorns next month, with the winner of the race getting a character named after them in the third book in the series – All Is Fair – later this year.

We were all set to go – the balloons were ordered, the helium was booked, the special website was created and ready to go – when we received a few tweets about how bad for the environment these things were.

We’d specifically opted for biodegradable balloons and recycled card, with no string or ribbon, and we were assured by the balloon company that the balloons degraded as quickly as an oak leaf. An oak leaf! That’s good, right?

Wrong. That’s still a good 6 months of latex hanging around, causing problems to wildlife.

And so we’ve decided to cancel the race, and both Emma and Forbidden Planet are in complete agreement about this. It would be the wrong thing to do to go ahead with it.

We’re still going to have a competition to celebrate the launch of Between Two Thorns, though, and the winner will still have a character named after them – watch this space for details of what that competition is going to be…

So many great books, so many great authors, so many great events!
Here are some  launch highlights for the next three months:

Between Two Thorns by Emma Newman, March 2013Emma Newman’s Between Two Thorns
We have two launches planned for wonderful book –

Thursday 7th March at Forbidden Planet, Bristol 6.00pm – 7.00pm and
Friday 8th March at Forbidden Planet, London 6.00pm – 7.00pm

Emma will be reading from and signing her debut adult novel, BetweenTwo Thorns.

Oh, and we’re going to have a balloon race! Not a big hot air balloon thingie, no – party-size helium-filled balloons.

“Why?” I hear you ask?
“Well, why the hell not?” we reply.

Pre-order a copy of the book and get your very own balloon (only for the first 200 pre-orders). The balloon that travels furthest wins a very special prize for its owner and its finder.
More details on this, very soon…

The Age Atomic, by Adam Christopher, art & design by Will StaehleAdam Christopher’s The Age Atomic
(plus special guest star, Empire State)

Thursday 4th April at Forbidden Planet, London 6.00pm – 7.00pm

Adam will be reading from and signing The Age Atomic – the sequel to his hugely-successful Empire State.

As well as hosting the signing for The Age Atomic, Forbidden Planet will have stock of limited edition hardbacks of both Empire State and The Age Atomic. Only 100 each of these will be offered for sale (at a very respectable £20 each), and you can pre-order now from FP’s webstore, or come along on the night and hope there are some left. Empire State will have a variant cover by the brilliant Will Staehle, who created the masterpieces that adorn all of Adam’s novels to date. This is the only edition planned to have this variant cover, and it’s bound to become a collector’s item. We’ll show you the new cover, soon…

Black Feathers by Joseph D'Lacey, April 2013Joseph D’Lacey’s Black Feathers 
Two launches planned for this superior fantasy –

Scottish Launch – Saturday 30th March at Blackwell’s, Edinburgh (time tbc) and
Friday 5th April at the Big Green Bookshop, London 6.00pm – 7.00pm

Joseph will be reading from and signing Black Feathers at both events. The Blackwells event is being run by the fine folk at This Is Horror.

More details about each of these events, closer to the signing dates…

Got any plans for the weekend yet? If not, here’s a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon, Angry Robot style:

Anne Lyle, Mike Shevdon, David Tallerman and Gav Thorpe will be appearing in a Science Fiction and Fantasy Readers Day, from 1 – 4 p.m. on Saturday November 17th, as part of Sheffield Central Library’s Meet the Author programme. They’ll be reading from their work, answering questions, signing stuff… all the usual shenanigans.

There will also be a session of ‘how to get published’ advice from Angry Robot’s Editor Lee Harris and Marketing Guy Darren Turpin, so any would-be authors who’d be interested in finding out what we look for in a potential Angry Robot Author could do a lot worse than coming along to see what we have to say for ourselves.

Tickets for the event are free (as are cake and refreshments!) but you will need to confirm your in attendance in advance so the Library can keep track of numbers.

Where and When: Saturday 17th November 2012, 1pm-4pm in the Central Library, Surrey Street, Sheffield

To Book Tickets: tel: 0114 273 4727 or email: centrallending.library@sheffield.gov.uk
