    Join the Robots as they talk about minimum publishing standards indie publishers should aspire to. This discussion was spawned by two blog posts from author Chuck Wendig about self-publishing not being the minor leagues. And a follow up post.

    The Robots staked out several different perspectives and a vigorous discussion was had. We all agree that indie publishers should do the very best they can and keep learning, but some parts of Chuck's posts got some strong push back. Perhaps that was the point. If so, it worked.

  • Join the Robots as they review Under A Graveyard Sky by John Ringo.

    Zombies are real. And we made them. Are you prepared for the zombie apocalypse? The Smith family is, with the help of a few marines.

    When an airborne zombie plague is released, bringing civilization to a grinding halt, the Smith family, Steven, Stacey, Sophia and Faith, take to the Atlantic to avoid the chaos. The plan is to find a safe haven from the anarchy of infected humanity. What they discover, instead, is a sea composed of the tears of survivors and a passion for bringing hope.

    For it is up to the Smiths and a small band of Marines to somehow create the refuge that survivors seek in a world of darkness and terror. Now with every continent a holocaust and every ship an abattoir, life is lived under a graveyard sky.
