Angry Robot authors announced for the Sci-Fi Weekender
In 2011 Emma embarked on an ambitious project to write and distribute one short story per week – all of them set in her Split Worlds milieu – completely free to her mailing list subscribers.
A debut short-story collection, From Dark Places, was published in 2011 and her debut post-apocalyptic novel for young adults, 20 Years Later, was published just one year later – presumably Emma didn’t want to wait another nineteen… Emma is also a professional audiobook narrator.
In 2013, Angry Robot will be publishing her Split Worlds urban fantasy trilogy, the first of which - Between Two Thorns - will be launched at the Sci-Fi Weekender!

David Tallerman was born and raised in the northeast of England. A long and confused period of education ended with an MA dissertation on the literary history of seventeenth century witchcraft that somehow incorporated references to both Kate Bush and H P Lovecraft.
Over the last few years, David has been steadily building a reputation for his genre short fiction and increasingly his writing has tended to push and merge genres, and to incorporate influences from his other great loves, comic books and cinema. He is the author of the popular Easie Damasco series of books, which include Giant Thief and Crown Thief.
Israeli-born writer Lavie Tidhar has been called an “emerging master” by Locus magazine, and has quickly established a name for himself as a short fiction writer of some note. He is the multiple award winning author of Osama, The Bookman Histories, and other novels, novellas and short stories too numerous to mention. He has won the British Fantasy Award, the Geffen Award and is currently shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.

He has written science fiction novels for Angry Robot, Solaris and Black Library, which include Reality 36 and Champion of Mars.
