Justina Robson’s ‘Five Things About Your Work In Progress’ (SPOILERS!)

In March of next  year we’re publishing Justina Robson’s new book The Glorious Angels. I’ve just finished editing the book and had talked to Justina telling her how excited I was by it – it’s strange, original and compelling. And quite brave I think.
