JOHN MEANEY & ALIETTE de BODARD at FORBIDDEN PLANET

We were delighted to offer an exclusive opportunity to WIN YOUR CHANCE TO BE KILLED HORRIBLY (don't say we never give you anything!) in John Meaney’s (Thomas Blackthorne’s) next Angry Robot title – or to get your hands on a gorgeous REPLICA AZTEC CALENDAR offered by Aliette de Bodard.

All you had to do was be at the signing of their latest titles Edge and Servant of the Underworld at Forbidden Planet’s London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue on Friday 12th February 2010

This was a unique opportunity to interview the authors – and to speak to them about their work – after the signing.

Writing as Thomas Blackthorne, JOHN MEANEY brings us the terror of Knife Edge – the reality TV show where wannabe blade fighters are the celebrities in a nation going to hell. Take a bloodied trip through a future London where prime-time gladiatorial combat has taken on a deadly bite.

ALIETTE DE BODARD is a winner of the Writers of the Future Award and a Campbell Award finalist. Servant of the Underworld is her debut novel, an Aztec mystery-fantasy featuring ghostly jaguars, bloodthirsty Gods and fingernail-eating monsters – and revealing her passion for, and knowledge of, Aztec mythology and culture.
