Strange Chemistry's First Two Authors!

1.20.2012
Strange Chemistry, the YA imprint of Angry Robot, has signed their first two authors! To read all about it, go HERE.

Their first is debut author Kim Curran! According to Strange Chemistry, "Her debut novel, Shift is the tale of your average, 16-year old loser Scott Tyler. When he meets the beautiful and mysterious Aubrey Jones, he learns he’s not quite so average after all. He’s a ‘Shifter’. And that means he has the power to undo any decision he’s ever made. At first, he thinks the power to shift is pretty cool. But as his world quickly starts to unravel around him he realises that each time he uses his power, it has consequences; terrible unforeseen consequences. Shifting is going to get him killed. In a world where everything can change with a thought, Scott has to decide where he stands.

Shift is a page-turning, kick-ass SF thriller novel with a very down-to-earth male protagonist. It will be published Autumn 2012, with a sequel to follow in 2013."

I don't know about you, but the ability to undo any decision you've ever made? Sounds pretty cool to me. (Until you get to the whole changing-the-fate-of-the-world thing, of course.)

And their second author, Seam Cummings, "brings us the remarkably dark and funny Poltergeeks. Julie is an apprentice witch – or so she believes. When a dark power comes stalking out of the past to haunt her and her mother, Julie learns that she is far more than just a witch. With the help of her best friend Marcus and a rather unusual Great Dane, Julie has to race against time to ensure she can defeat the bad guy, save her mother and avoid being grounded – again!


We have signed Sean for two novels in the Poltergeeks universe, the first to be published in Autumn of this year with the second to follow in the summer of 2013."

I kind of really like witches. ;) So what do you think? Are you excited for the first books from Strange Chemistry?
