by Daniel Abraham

So you know when a bad thing happens to a dear friend, and you have to be very solemn inside even though the way it came down actually makes your own life WAY WAY better? So, a little after the fact, I need to offer my condolences to everyone over at George RR Martin’s office for the unfortunate loss of his minion, Pat. And TOTALLY UNRELATED, I’d like to introduce James SA Corey’s new minion, Pat! Y’all will be seeing […]

So I’m still in the middle of a bunch of Really Cool Work, but there were a few things I wanted to pop on the Internet and mention.  Many of these are also cool. 1) The Long Price Quartet is finally going to be on audio.  A Shadow in Summer is already up for preorder. 2) I did an interview with my friend Cameron Goble that has been made available online. 3) Things are going well with the TV show.

A little cold turkey

Well, the summer’s over and I’m a little behind where I wanted to be.  The TV show, it turns out, could easily have been a full time job all on its own.  But since we’re not giving *that* up, I (Daniel) am dropping off Twitter & Facebook for a couple three months.  And, to make sure I don’t cheat, I’ve had my Darling Wife change my passwords. I’ve also deleted my favorite games and news apps. If y’all need to […]

So, for those keeping score at home, here’s how things stand: 1) Bubonicon Ty and I are both at Bubonicon this weekend. If you’re in Albuquerque, do stop by. 2) The Widow’s House launch The Widow’s House — fourth and penultimate book of The Dagger and the Coin — launches Tuesday […]

Sometimes you start something really big and complicated – like entering a whole new kind of business for instance – and you really really hope that things are going to go well? Yeah, so about that . . . A few months ago, it was announced that SyFy, Sean Daniel Company, and Alcon Entertainment had made a deal to make The Expanse into a TV show. Ten episodes, straight to series (which means we wouldn’t be making a pilot episode […]
