Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey

Keeping the Fun in Science Fiction – Guest Blog by Joseph Brassey 

Islands sit suspended in an endless heaven, drifting amidst clouds and storms, high above a distant abyss below. Cities crouch upon the edges of cliffs, their walls jutting out into the empty air, and enchanted skycraft hurtle through the heavens, their magnificent wings catching the light of sunsets as the blue-white glow of their exhaust […]

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz

How The Belgariad Taught Me To Write A Cyberpunk Dystopia – Guest Blog by Ferrett Steinmetz 

Full confession: I thought my new novel The Uploaded was a dystopian novel about the miseries that happen five hundred years after humanity perfects brain-uploading. But my publisher Angry Robot told me it was something different. “You wrote a cyberpunk family drama, Ferrett!” I looked up, baffled, from my chocolate milk – the only drink […]

Publishing and LGBT Erasure or My Issues with Robo-Boobs

Publishing and LGBT Erasure or My Issues with Robo-Boobs 

I always knew someone would tell me to add a Sexy Lady Robot to my book. When I first starting writing my novel, Echo of the Larkspur, I set out to write a story that was first and foremost about love. Love between a male human and an omnipotent, genderless robot that identified as male, […]

Cover Reveal for A Veil Of Spears

Cover Reveal for A Veil Of Spears 

I can still remember the first time I heard of Bradley Beaulieu. It was 2011 when he was in the running for the Gemmell Morningstar Award with The Winds of Khalakovo. That was a great book and anyone who read it knew that Bradley would go far should he stick with Fantasy. However, Khalakovo was a […]

Reading My Namesake: Guest Post by Titus Chalk

Reading My Namesake: Guest Post by Titus Chalk 

Titus Chalk finally reads the book after which he was named – Mervyn Peake’s gothic classic Titus Groan. “Your name is TITUS,” said Sourdust very simply, “TITUS the seventy-seventh Earl of Groan and Lord of Gormenghast. I do adjure you hold each of the cold stones sacred that clings to these, your grey ancestral walls. […]

Why I Don’t Like Dragons – Guest Blog by Oliver Langmead

Why I Don’t Like Dragons – Guest Blog by Oliver Langmead 

First, a confession: the title of this article is a little bit sensationalist. The truth is, I don’t actively dislike dragons. I don’t go around hating them and huffing and puffing at books with dragons on the cover, and films with dragons in the trailers. My feelings towards dragons is closer to an indifference. They […]

Putting Fantasy On The Map

Putting Fantasy On The Map 

A while ago, I came across a wonderful spoof map of the fantasy land of Clichéa. For those who haven’t seen it before, you can find it below (click the picture to see a larger version). It features all the places that no self-respecting fantasy world would be without, from the Northern Shire (the Village […]

Six Scenes With Jesper

Six Scenes With Jesper

Again, Game of Thrones will meet Ocean’s Eleven as the six characters we know and love attempt to survive their success and make their […]

Where do you get your ideas from?

Where do you get your ideas from? 

Sometimes out of the mouths, well hands, of babes and sucklings it seems… It’s a question many writers dread and I think it’s because it’s so hard to give any sort of concrete answer. Mostly. I mean, they come from anywhere and everywhere. They pop into your head unbidden (inspired by something you’ve seen or […]

Nothing Is As It Seems

Nothing Is As It Seems 

I’ve always referred to The Relic Guild Trilogy as a single story chopped up into three books. Mostly because it’s true. It is the tale of a secret band of magickers protecting a million humans in a city hidden at the centre of a giant labyrinth; a city that barely manages to survive, trapped behind […]

I STARTED AN AWARD-WINNING SF/F PUBLISHING HOUSE AND ALL I LEARNED WERE THESE SEVEN RANDOM THINGS

I STARTED AN AWARD-WINNING SF/F PUBLISHING HOUSE AND ALL I LEARNED WERE THESE SEVEN RANDOM THINGS 

In honour of Angry Robot’s seventh anniversary, founder and publisher Marc Gascoigne was persuaded to share some random thoughts on how the innovative imprint ticks. Unfortunately, that’s just what he did. 1) IF YOU WANT TO GET HERE, I WOULDN’T START FROM THERE Publishing has changed immeasurably since August 2008 when Angry Robot was first […]
