Win A Gruesome Death!
Your chance for immortality by your own gruesome demise - in John Meaney’s (Thomas Blackthorne’s) next Angry Robot title – or you can win a gorgeous replica Aztec calendar offered by Aliette de Bodard.
All you have to do is be at the signing of 'Edge' and Aliette's stunning 'Servant of the Underworld' at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue on Friday 12th February 6 – 7pm.
There will also be a unique opportunity to interview the authors – and to speak to them about their work – after the signing... (which is also likely to involve beer).
John Meaney brings us the terror of Knife Edge – the reality TV show where wannabe blade fighters are the celebrities in a nation going to hell. Take a bloodied trip through a future London where prime-time gladiatorial combat has taken on a deadly bite.
Aliette de Bodard is a winner of the Writers of the Future Award and a Campbell Award finalist. 'Servant of the Underworld' is her debut novel, an Aztec mystery-fantasy featuring ghostly jaguars, bloodthirsty Gods and fingernail-eating monsters – and revealing her passion for, and knowledge of, Aztec mythology and culture.
Check it out at Forbidden Planet, or at Angry Robot Books.
