Today sees the release in e-format of three books I’m very excited about – Gollancz’s three official tie-ins to forthcoming blockbuster computer game ELITE: DANGEROUS.

But wait! If you’re the sort of person who would never read a game-related tie-in, please let me try and convince you why these are worth your time.

For a start, there is no real plot to the ELITE games – they’re a sandbox, a world in which the player truly makes his own decisions. Apart from … More

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (or shall we say Captain America: The Cool Sounding Subtitle That is Actually Little More Than a Pretty Cool Subplot?)

Film Reviews

So I took my twelve year son and my twelve year old self to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier (or shall we say Captain America: The Cool Sounding Subtitle That is Actually Little More Than a Pretty Cool Subplot?).

It was fun. Chris Evans is very engaging and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is a superb co-lead character and foil to the Captain’s straight-laced approach, Robert Redford is all the craggy and quite a lot of the slightly disconcerting confidence and Samuel … More

Robot Overlords mmp xGollancz acquire novelisation of upcoming British science-fiction film with a high-profile cast

The eagerly-anticipated British independent film, ROBOT OVERLORDS, is due for release in early 2015

Gollancz, an imprint of the Orion Publishing Group, is thrilled to announce the acquisition of World Rights to publish the official novelisation. The fully authorised tie-in novel will be written by the scriptwriter and co-creator of the science-fiction movie, Mark Stay.

From Tempo Productions and Pinewood Pictures, ROBOT OVERLORDS stars Gillian Anderson (THE X-FILES), Ben Kingsley (IRON MAN 3) and Callan McAuliffe (THE GREAT GATSBY). The film is co-written by British script-writers Mark Stay and Jon Wright, and produced by Piers Tempest. With breath taking visual effects from the UK team Nvizible and stunning onset locations in the UK Isle of Man and Northern Ireland, ROBOT OVERLORDS is generating buzz across social media platforms months ahead of the film’s release in early 2015.

The film follows a group of teenagers in the wake of Earth’s invasion by Robots, and their regime which confined the human survivors to their homes. No one knows why – or what they want. There is only one clear message: Robots never lie. Nor do they show mercy . . .
