Angry Robot Podcast #13

Posted by: | Comments (2)

We’re back from our hiatus, with a bit of a format change. I’m joined in my hosting duties by Lee and Marco, who talk about where Angry Robot is right now, and then we talk to author Peter Crowther of Darkness Falling (out now!) We cover the book, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, and the Twilight Zone (both the classic and the 1985 version.) After we talk to Pete, you get a peek at the audiobook!

Rampant Robots

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Here’s your bumper round-up of all things Robot. (Cue annoying dee-dee-diddly-dee news anchor ident sting overlaid with anachronistic sound of typewriters…)

Lovely Aliette de Bodard went deep, deep into the world of Acatl as she discussed the final novel in the Obsidian & Blood trilogy, Master of the House of Darts, with the Faster Times.

Aaand she made this lovely trailer for this latest Acatl novel too. Studio roll VT:

Aaaaaaaaand she’s running a really cool Aztec-themed competition on her blog. Check it out and win win win, as apparently they say!

Lovely Trent Jamieson talked all things Roil with the nice folks at Ranting Dragon.

Ahead of the concluding volume, King’s War, lovely Maurice Broaddus took a long, hard look at the extraordinary world of his Knights of Breton Court series for the Pudge Factor.

Lovely Lauren Beukes, modestly not mentioning much about her massive, massive new book deal (me and her mother, Mrs Harris, are so damn proud), was interviewed by Bruce Sterling. Yes, that Bruce Sterling.

Anne Lyle was lovely enough to share some advance secrets from her upcoming magical Elizabethan fantasy The Alchemist of Souls with Fran Terminielo.

The lovely KW Jeter was Guest of Honor at Steamcon III recently. Check out the pics and a great write up from Steampunk News. We think all our authors should get an official convention photo done with a girl with a boat on her head. No, just because.

And finally, no skateboarding puppies this week, but instead the lovely Lavie Tidhar gave great podcast for the Skiffy & Fanty Show in this discussion of his new novel Osama. It’s not by us, but it’s bloody great so fair dues and all that.

Here are a few things that have cropped up in my RSS Reader over the last few days:

Zoo CityFirst up – Pornokitsch reviews Zoo City by Lauren Beukes:

Beukes trusts her readers. She trusts us to pick up on unknown slang and languages; she trusts us to understand how her novel’s magical economy works without explaining its origins; she trusts us to like her protagonist despite introducing her as a murderer. She trusts us to care about a music scene we may be unfamiliar with, state-sponsored violence we may not have heard much about, a city we may never have visited.

Zoo City, in the final analysis, meets every Kitschie criteria – and then some.

Next up – The Eloquent Page reviews Thomas Blackthorne’s Point:

I knew nothing about Point by Thomas Blackthorne when it dropped through my letterbox. Within five pages… I was completely hooked.

Point is a sequel to last year’s novel Edge. I haven’t read the first novel but I should stress that this didn’t hamper my enjoyment of Point in anyway… Now that I have been introduced to this universe I can only hope that there will be more.

Listen to John Meaney (aka Thomas Blackthorne) reading from the first chapter:

The Functional Nerds podcast this week features our very own Lavie Tidhar, who talks about… well, pretty much everything, really. Head on over and listen.

Advent Calendar
It’s day 3 on our Advent calendar, and another of our authors has a festive treat for you!

(Oh, no, he doesn’t!) Stop that.

Vote for the Year’s Best
SFBook.com are having a vote – which of their Books of the Month do you think should win their Book of the Year? Every month they’ve chosen a title they enjoyed more than any other that month, and now they want you to tell them which is the best of the best!

3 out of the 12 are Angry Robot titles – pretty good when you consider we only published books in 6 months of 2010.

The Angry Robot books up for consideration are (with quotes from the SFBook reviews):

The World House by Guy Adams

The World House is a utterly original, quite crazy and simply brilliant piece of fiction.

The Road to Bedlam by Mike Shevdon

The Road to Bedlam is a rich, detailed and impressive sequel to one of the best novels of 2009 with a gripping plot, superb characterisation and is such an effortless joy to read.

Amortals by Matt Forbeck

Amortals is an action packed sci fi thriller full of fantastic tech and a great ending, highly recommended.

The books are up against some stiff competition, though – see the full list here, and go vote (on the front page)!

Podcast News
You can keep your gold and frankincense  - but we’re hanging on to the Mur! Our monthly Angry Robot podcast, hosted by the queen of podcasting, the Mighty Mur Lafferty. was originally scheduled for just 6 episodes. Mur has done such an awesome job, though, we’ve asked her to do some more for us, and she’s agreed! Now that’s what I call a Christmas present!
