Lee Harris is the editor with Angry Robot Books. A science fiction and fantasy publisher, based in the UK, but publishing worldwide, Angry Robot titles have won many awards, including the Arthur C Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel in 2011.

Lee also founded Hub Magazine – a monthly short fiction dead tree zine, which became a weekly online publication before half-collapsing at around issue 150.

He loves mince pies, but hates dried fruit, and no, he doesn’t understand that, either.
