robotworldAngry Robot Books is a global publishing imprint dedicated to publishing the very best in SF/F/Horror fiction.

For more than 12 years now, we have consistently sought to find and give a platform to new voices and new stories that push the boundaries of science fiction, fantasy, and WTF?! Our submitted novels this year include critically acclaimed and commercially successful stories about a soft toy triceratops detective with PTSD, an autistic scientist contending with AI Gods and post-human angels, a soldier battling her own madness and her corporate overlords as she experiences disturbing time-skips, and Israeli sorcerers persecuted and exploited as they fight for survival while the government turns a blind eye. With an incredible backlist of titles from some of the greatest names in contemporary genre fiction, and our gaze focused always on finding the next Big, Bold, Bonkers Thing, we’re an integral part of the UK’s SFF publishing landscape, proud of our achievements and excited about what we’ll do next.

Traditional SF and fantasy has been ploughing an entertaining furrow for many decades, but to our way of thinking much of it is missing a trick. To the new generations of readers reared on Dr Who and Battlestar Galactica, graphic novels and Gears of War 2, old school can mean staid, stuck in a rut. “Crossover” is increasingly the way forward and you’ll find plenty of it here, without batting an eyelid. New heroes and new settings, or maybe just reinventing the wheel, we’re not fussed – if there’s an energy in a book that gets us jumping up and down, we’re all over it.

We know many readers are madly passionate about their genres. Angry Robot is too. If anything, we’re too passionate. We are fans, given at any moment to break into a lengthy harangue about why book X is a lost classic or author Y really should give it up already. The sheer joy, though, of being able to jump onto a table (only sometimes metaphorically) and tell the world about how bloody great a chosen writer or novel is, is what drives Angry Robot.

Run from the UK but publishing worldwide, Angry Robot’s books will pick from a menu of the following formats:

Physical paperbacks – in all good bookstores, worldwide

Limited run special editions – where demand is high enough, as hardcovers or trades, everyday or leatherbound; keep your collection in matching editions

eBooks – downloadable versions of all our titles, across the main formats – ePub and Kindle, alongside their first release anywhere in the world

Downloadable audio – our goal is to release every title we acquire in digital audio format

Keep checking back for more news on what we’re planning… and do tell us how we’re getting on.
