British independent publisher Accent Press are about to launch Robots, another beast of a book in the tradition of their previous anthology, Zombies, released last year.
At 204 pages it features many new, emerging and established talents including "MY Robot" by Paul Harrison-Davies which has been adapted into a ROK Comic version for mobile.
"This anthology is the one I always hoped we'd get around to," says co-editor Colin Mathieson. "Anyone that knows me knows that robots are my favourite science fiction concept!
"It’s all part of our profile building both in the UK and abroad," he told downthetubes, "and giving deserved exposure to the many undiscovered talents that we’ve come across on our travels.
• Robots, edited by Dave West and Colin Mathieson, with cover art by Andy Bloor, will ship in May and have its UK launch at the Bristol Comics Festival, followed by its European launch in Copenhagen at the komiks.dk festival where Accent will be making their third appearance.
