Angry Robot ™ is a new global publishing imprint. Our mission, quite simply, is to publish the best in brand new genre fiction – SF, F and WTF?!Man Price was very gentle when he attempted to explain.
Traditional SF and fantasy has been ploughing an entertaining furrow for many decades, but to our way of thinking much of it is missing a trick.
I assume you are aware that WTF can mean, in non publishing circles, something along the lines of "What the heck" but with Heck being replaced by a much stronger word. USA kids will use WTF on Facebook and while texting on their phones. So in theory, Angry Robot could be asking for WTF fiction--maybe, that is, fiction that makes you respond, "What the heck was that?"To quote Homer Simpson: DOH!
Otherwise, I have not heard of WTF as an abbreviation related to writing.
He (Man Price, not Homer) suggested that working out alternative meanings for WTF might be a good source of a small stone...and he has come up with a few ideas.

Wild Terrifying Fiction
Withhold The Facts
Got anything better?Winsome tender fantasy
Wasted torpid fairytales
Wise teasing fables
Thanks Man Price.
