Angry Robot Books: When last were you scared?

25 Jan

The awesome SF/F/WTF? publisher, Angry Robot, have signed a new author!


Angry Robot, HarperCollins’ imprint focussing on innovative fantasy and science fiction, has turned its attention to reinvigorating horror.

Gary McMahon’s Pretty Little Dead Things and its sequel promise an
astonishing mix of David Peace and modern Japanese horror cinema to
create a truly unique fusion of intense writing and sheer terror.

Marc Gascoigne, Angry Robot’s publishing director, said: “Horror thrives in movies and graphic novels. Like our other recent discovery, Kaaron
Warren, Gary is at the forefront of a new generation of writers bringing
that energy back to horror fiction.”

McMahon added: “Working with the Angry Robot family, it feels as if I’m
participating in something fresh and vital. Exciting times lie ahead.”
Pretty Little Dead Things will be published in the UK and Australia this
July, and in the US (also by Angry Robot) in winter 2010. Its sequel, Dead Bad Things, follows in the Spring of 2011, with US publication shortly thereafter. All Angry Robot titles are available in paperback, eBook and audio formats.
