The End of the Story

by Daniel Abraham

I’ve just sent in the last changes to The Spider’s War, the last book of The Dagger and the Coin. All in all, it’s about 700,000 words to finish the story I began with an apostate priest being hunted through the mountains. I started the project with a couple of goals in mind: I wanted to understand what epic fantasy was, and I wanted to make one that scratched all my personal itches. To aim for the first, I called […]

A couple things

by Daniel Abraham

First off, we’re doing an AMA over at around 2:00 Pacific/5:00 Eastern. Y’all should stop by if you’re of a mind. Second: Blogs, right? Kinda not doing much with this one. Should think about putting this thing back in rotation.

That’s a wrap (and another thing)

by Daniel Abraham

The Expanse season one had it’s wrap party last night.  It was wonderful and exhausting and long and filled to the rafters with talented, dedicated, genuinely great people.  The presidents of Alcon TV and Syfy were both on hand, and a bunch of folks from the cast and crew.  I am now exhausted and delighted and ready to be home for a few days. The Powers are still working out the premier date, so apart from 2015, I’ve got nothing […]

A Short Note on Expanse News

by Daniel Abraham

So here I am on the set of The Expanse in my nifty little chair with my name on it (actually, that’s not true — Ty’s in my chair, I’m in the chair of a fella at a much higher pay grade than mine, but he’s good with it).  It is, I feel comfortable saying, much cooler than I’d expected.  And I thought it’d be pretty cool. We just had a comment on another thread complaining that Naomi Nagata has been […]

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?
