Angry Robot launches in the UK in July 2009, and in the US and the rest of the world from September. Ebook editions will be available worldwide from July. Its first titles are a mix of genres, from street smart neat-future thriller to ultra-dark horror to wild modern fantasy. Its authors, too, fulfil its mission: two men and two women, two new writers and two established, and from all corners of the globe – in this case the USA, Fiji and South Africa.

Here is a little preview of the dark urban fantasy title by Tim Waggoner called Nekropolis.
UK/eBook: August 09
US/RoW: October 09
Meet Matt Richter. Private eye. Zombie.
His mean streets are the city of the dead, the shadowy realm known as Nekropolis. And in this first case, Richter must help a delectable half-vampire named Devona recover a legendary artifact known as the Dawnstone, before it’s used to destroy Nekropolis itself. That is, if he can survive the myriad horrors that infest the city itself.
Pulp and proud, cracking wise like we just dug up the rotting corpse of Dashiell Hammett and put him back to work at his typewriter, Nekropolis is just the first of a series of extraordinary urban fantasies Angry Robot will be bringing you from the mighty Tim Waggoner.
