Hey Guys and Girls,
It’s been a while since I posted anything about Angry Robot Books on the blog and now’s the time to do it; there’s plenty that’s been happening and plenty still to come, so let’s get to it!
First off, Angry Robot books posted the covers of all their books coming out from January to June 2011 – each and every one of them is awesome, featuring skinned vampires, soldiers, Vegas, sloths and storks, and much, much more – check out all the covers here.
Next up, on the 7th of January these two books became available in the UK – I’ve got copies of both and I’ve been anticipating them for a while (since the first AR novels by both authors were absolutely awesome); look out for reviews coming up. 🙂
On the 10th of January, Angry Robot signed a new author to join their already excellent lists – this author‘s second novel (coming from Orbit) is on it’s way to South Africa in March and the first title, Death Most Definite, is already available. 🙂 Massive congrats, Trent!
Next up, Hugos are on the way and we all know what that means – narrowing down the choices that will be voted upon to win the prestigeous award! This post spells out which Angry Robot titles are elligable along with the cover artists and studios that created the covers for the various books.
On the 12th, Angry Robot announced a new family-member! 🙂 What a lucky bastard, huh? 😉 Congrats to him!
And finally, today you can head over to Angry Robot and read some sample chapters of both Thomas Blackthorne’s Point and Maurice Broaddus’ King’s Justice – just the thing to get you really thinking about what to buy when you go book-shopping tomorrow! 🙂
Remember, Angry Robot is *the* publisher of excellent SF / F / and WTF – if you want your fiction to be strange, beautiful and definitely not the normal cookie-cutter stuff, you couldn’t make a better choice than checking out their website; you’ll be able to find info on all their authors (which include South Africa’s own Lauren Beukes), the titles available, and much more to give you the best information you need to make you choice. 🙂
