Sci-fi and fantasy specialist Angry Robot is setting up a Young Adult Imprint

Sci-fi and fantasy specialist Angry Robot is setting up a YA imprint, Strange Chemistry, with genre blogger Amanda Rutter appointed editor.

The imprint will launch in September 2012, with five titles to be published before the end of the year, with plans to then publish one book a month. Strange Chemistry will co-publish its titles simultaneously in the US and UK, in both e-book and paperback formats, as Angry Robot does.

Angry Robot managing director Marc Gascoigne said: "The key to any truly successful genre imprint is the personality of its editors. In Amanda we've found the perfect mix of editing skills and wild, wild enthusiasm for the subject. We're beyond delighted to welcome her to the team."
