So, it’s open season at Angry Robot again.
Last year they laid themselves open to the hordes and received almost 1,000 submissions – some of them suitable (incredible how few people read the guidelines…). My own Humani was rejected.
This year they’ve considerably narrowed their range, requesting only classic fantasy, or YA for their Strange Chemistry imprint. I sent in my submission Seven Dark Travellers on Tuesday, carefully going through the list of checks – is it really classic fantasy, is it volume 2 of three, etc… But it was important that Angry Robot did this, as the first submission they’ve rejected was a 50,000 word Batman fanfic.
