Angry Robot TM is a new imprint from HarperCollins dedicated to the best in modern adult science fiction, fantasy and everything inbetween. Its book line will launch in July 2009, with both physical books across a wide variety of formats, and online versions, both e-books and audio. British-based but selling worldwide, it’s… well, let’s just say that it’s about time someone launched an SF/F imprint that didn’t feel like it was aimed at bloody fifty year-olds.
Stay tuned for lots more details, Jim.

There’ll be more troubling names beaming down to join our crusade imminently, but right now your genial hosts are…

Chris Michaels – HarperCollins’ Publishing Brand Manager. The “it’s a crazy idea but in a year everyone will be doing this” guy.

Lee Harris – Assistant Editor. Helps Marco decide what an Angry Robot author looks like, and does his fair share of marketing and making the tea. Also publishes a well-known weekly fiction eZine.
