Press release #2: Angry Robot hires Lee “Hub” Harris as Assistant Editor December 1, 2008

Posted by Marco in News.

(December 1st, 2008, Nottingham UK) Angry Robot, the upcoming contemporary SF and fantasy imprint from HarperCollins, has announced a new recruit. Lee Harris joins the Nottingham-based team as Assistant Editor from January.

lee harrisLee made his name in SF circles as founder of Hub, the weekly newsletter that has delivered a short story and reviews to its ten thousand subscribers every Friday for several years. He is also the editor of Prism, the newsletter of the British Fantasy Society.

Angry Robot Publishing Director Marc Gascoigne had this to say: “Lee’s one of those rare individuals who are so driven by their love of science fiction they’ve gone beyond just reading and discussing the stuff. Establishing a weekly magazine and running it without fail for years is the mark of a dedicated, energetic guy… maybe just a little bit crazy too. I’m truly happy to have him join us in our mission.”

Lee added: “I am absolutely delighted to be taking up this role. Angry Robot promises to be an exciting new publishing house. It’s a great opportunity and I can’t wait to get stuck in!”

Angry Robot was announced in September 2008. It will release details of its first titles, due in stores worldwide in the second half of 2009, in the next few weeks.

BTW, we should add that although Lee’s stepping back from active editorial duty, Hub will continue to appear every Friday as scheduled. Huzzah!

Congratulations, Lee!

Thankyou, George!

HUGE smiles all round in the Harris household at the moment.

I should point out, though, that the photograph is less representative than I would like. In real life I’m more a mix of Brad Pitt and George Clooney, with a touch of Robbie Williams thrown in. Cameras tend to bend the truth around me.

Indeed, many congratulations Lee!
