The Gen Con Writer's Symposium would not be possible without the help of some very awesome people, including volunteers, authors, our great audiences, and of course, our sponsors. We'd like to take this opportunity to highlight one of our generous sponsors this year, Angry Robot Books!
Angry Robot (www.angryrobotbooks.com) has been bringing readers topnotch speculative fiction since 2009. What sets them apart from all the rest of the science fiction and fantasy publishers out there? Well, they say it best: They specialize in "SF, F, and WTF?!" Readers can expect to get high quality novels of the caliber found at any big 5 publisher. But they can also expect a bit of the unexpected. Angry Robot takes chances on stories that are not your average, run of the mill tales. This gives them the advantage of actually discovering trends before they happen. You want to know what the next best thing in speculative fiction is going to be? Keep your eye on Angry Robot.
Angry Robot is a company of publishing professionals, but they are also huge fans of the genre. They are passionate about their work and it shows in everything from their books, their demeanor at conventions, and the way they interact with fans. Several of their authors and professionals will also be taking part in Writer's Symposium programming, including Jay Posey, Kameron Hurley, Patrick S Tomlinson, Carrie Patel, Alyc Helms, Adam Rakunas, Peter Tieryas, and Michael R. Underwood.
We at the Writer's Symposium are so happy to have Angry Robot Books as a sponsor this year, and we hope you check out their books and stop by their booth at Gen Con to say hi!
