Angry Robot Books is officially launched (with a cake made out of metal, I believe), which means “Slights” and “Moxyland” are launched as well. “Moxyland” by Lauren Beukes, is a terrifying, disturbing, heart-breaking book. I got the end and started back at the beginning again; it’s that kind of book. I’m going to read it again now I’ve read her afterword; the layers I missed of South African history, of manipulation and abuse, will hopefully come through now. It’s a damn cute little soft toy, too. I bet my daughter will want one.


That’s the very rare Advance Review Copy they’re reading. The real cover is fabulous.

With perfect timing, Falcata Times has posted an interview with me and a review of “Slights”. This was an interesting interview in that they ask all writers the same questions. Good to flick back and see what the others said!

The very entertaining and learned Gillian Polack, whose novel “The Art of Effective Dreaming” will be launched very soon indeed, has honoured me by asking me to be the first of her guest bloggers at her Food History site.  Over the next two days, I’ll talk about the food in “Slights”, food in general, and eating. I’ll post a couple of ripper recipes, too.

First Review

James Whittington, at Zone Horror, has posted the first review of “Slights”. It starts like this:

“Dark and sinister with a huge sense of raw dread running through its page count…” and gets better from there! It’s an interesting site worth visiting, but read my review before you click on anything else!

Angry Robot today announced some incredible news. I’ve known for a while.

My novel ‘Slights’ will be published by them in June. They’ve also bought my next two novels (yes, I’ve written three!) and these will be published before long as well.

Any writer will know how I feel. I’ve worked for this most of my life, since I wrote my first story at seven. Even more so, since I wrote my first novel at fourteen and began signing all birthday cards “Kaaron Warren, famous writer.”

You can find the announcement on their webpage. I’m loving working with these guys; it’s fun, it’s professional and they know what they’re doing.
