Adam Rakunas Joins the Robot Author Ranks

Adam Rakunas Joins the Robot Author Ranks

Hail Robot Army!

We have a very happy announcement to make: we have assimilated one of your own. Step forward Adam Rakunas, Robot Army member of some years and who happened to tend the bar at Angry Robot's big launch party back in 2009 at Montreal's WorldCon!

Acquired from Sam Morgan at JABberwocky Literary Agency, Adam's debut, Windswept, is the first in a two-book deal and will be released in September 2015. The as-yet-untitled sequel will follow in 2016.


Windswept stars Padma Mehta, a long-time labor organizer who is on the verge of making the deal of her life when it all falls apart. Now, she has to rely on the neighbourhood scam artist and a handful of stowaways to save her city, her planet, and Occupied Space — all before Happy Hour. With a host of well-crafted characters, Windswept is a part detective, part space operetta with snappy dialogue, adventure, and plenty of comedic timing.

Adam Rakunas

Adam Rakunas: “I’m stoked to join the assimilated masses at Angry Robot, especially after I was informed that the process no longer hurt as much as before. Some of my favorite books and authors have come from the digital mines of AR, and I’m honored that my little book about sex, violence, and labor relations will join them.”

Adam Rakunas has worked a variety of weird jobs. He’s been a virtual world developer, a parking lot attendant, a triathlon race director, a fast food cashier, and an online marketing consultant. Now a stay-at-home dad, Adam splits his non-parenting time between writing, playing the cello, and political rabble-rousing. His stories have appeared in Futurismic and the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Windswept is his first novel.
