This week marks the announcement of a new science fiction imprint from HarperCollins: Angry Robot Books, dedicated to “the best in modern adult science fiction, fantasy and everything in between”.
Their inaugural list of titles sounds quite promising:
- Moxyland by Lauren Beukes (Science Fiction, July 2009) – a near-future, ultra-smart thriller about technological progress, and the freedoms it removes.
- Slights by Kaaron Warren (Horror, July 2009) – a near death experience brings Stephanie to face all of her enemies, again and again.
- Book of Secrets by Chris Roberson (Modern Fantasy, August 2009) – a modern fantasy described as The Da Vinci Code rewritten by the Coen Brothers.
- Nekropolis by Tim Waggoner (Urban Fantasy, August 2009) – first in a series of zombie detective stories.
(NOTE: release dates are for the UK. US versions will be available starting in September.)
