Madeline Ashby Signs Two Book Deal with Angry Robot
Greetings from a very excited Angry Robot office! We’re delighted to officially announce the acquisition of not one, but two, new titles from Madeline Ashby.
With worldwide rights, we acquired Company Town, a new standalone novel, to be published in late 2014 and Rev, the third in the Machine Dynasty novels, which will appear in 2015. Here are more details:
They call it Company Town – a Family-owned city-sized oil rig off the coast of the Canadian Maritimes.
Meet Hwa. One of the few in her community to forego bio-engineered enhancements, she’s the last truly organic person left on the rig. But she’s an expert in the arts of self-defence, and she’s been charged with training the Family’s youngest, who has been receiving death threats – seemingly from another timeline.
Meanwhile, a series of interconnected murders threatens the city’s stability – serial killer? Or something much, much worse…?
We’re delighted to keep Madeline in our Robot Family, and do send her on your best wishes, too!
