Whats the goss?

So... whats the goss?

What's making headlines this week in the world of speculative fiction? Well... Angry Robot are back, and boy are they angry! Well, not really.

Angry Robot are gearing up for another assault on readers by releasing review copies (via Netgalley) of their upcoming books entitled Flex by Ferrett Steinmetz, Nexus by Ramez Naam and The Buried Life by Carrie Patel. All of these look very exciting, and I for one am stoked to see Angry Robot powering up again after the dramas of 2014.

For more information and other Angry Robot news check this link out.

In other news, the nominations for the Ditmar Award have opened for 2015. The form can be found online here. Please consult the list of eligible work (also found at that link) before nominating. Voting will take place later on this year at SwanCon 2015. If you have a favourite author, then please take the time to nominate them and their work. It really does mean the world to them.

Charles Coleman Finlay has been named editor of F&SF, beginning with the March-April 2015 issue. More information can be found here.

And finally... drumroll please (or should that be booming war drums sounding the distance?)... Lord Grimdark... aka Joe Abercrombie... is touring Australia in February!!! He will be doing a book signing, talk, and QnA at Galaxy Books in Sydney on Sunday February 15th at 2pm. Come and bow before the dark lord! For more information click here.

Thats all for this week peeps... stay tuned for Ben Peek's interview on Monday, and remember... keep on reading!
