Angry Robot Books announced earlier today that their YA imprint Strange Chemistry and their mystery imprint Exhibit A will both be ceasing publication immediately. The announcement is here. There was no word on what would happen to ebooks. Hopefully they won’t disappear from your ereader.
Angry Robot also announced that they will increase their output from 2 books a month to 3. This may be a cost saving measure in which the company moves assets from poorer performing units to strengthen its core business. I hope it works out for them.
My sympathy is for those who have lost their jobs, especially the authors with books under contract. If there’s a title from either Strange Chemistry or Exhibit A you’ve had your eye on, now would be the time to pick it up. I especially recommend the Emilie series by Martha Wells. My review of Emilie and the Hollow World is here. Emilie and the Sky World is in the TBR pile.
