Angry Robot change
« on: May 15, 2010, 12:41:19 PM »
I see that Angry Robot, the UK indy sff publisher has been sold by HarperCollins to a war books publisher.

Waht do people think about this move - good thing or bad thing for the AR people and their authors?

Smaller backer, can't be a good thing, eh? Less money for advance and marketing?

On the other hand, a niche publisher might be more able to get their head around an indie vibe.

Big corporates aren't so hot at that.

Angry Robot are currently closed to unsolicited submissions, but this will change in March 2011.
