Toronto Diary Day Two

08.21.16
by Ty Franck

Roll out of bed 11ish, wander to French joint to get brunch (Brunch is where drinking champagne at noon doesn’t feel like you have a problem) then wander back to hotel. Getting to transition back into the production schedule gently is not a bad thing. Looking over some script pages to give notes. It makes us feel like we’re doing work without actually feeling like we’re working. I can tell it’s hitting the end of the production cycle though, because […]

Toronto Diary: Day One

08.21.16
by Daniel Abraham

Despite the best efforts of the Gods of Travel and through the kind graces of Amy Cuthbertson, we have arrived in Toronto for filming.  Ty suggests that we document our time here on this, the blog we sometimes seem to forget we have.  It is our intention to share our field notes here like the explorers of old, only with indoor plumbing and someone to drive us to and from work and a little less overt colonialism. Tomorrow, I may […]

A few closing thoughts on Season 1 of The Expanse

02.03.16
by Daniel Abraham

Well, the first season finale aired last night, and now we have that illusion of a lull while the output of our labor coasts for a while and we knock our brains out doing the next season and the next novel and the next novella. But still, it seemed like a good time for a few closing thoughts. It’s an honor and a pleasure to work on the show.  The team on this was astounding, and the education was intense. […]

Tim Bradstreet is a God.

Once upon a time, there was a post here with images of some really cool Expanse posters.  But then a bunch of asshole pirate sites started reusing the images by linking to my ISP’s servers and driving the traffic through the roof. *This* is whew can’t have nice things. Tim Bradstreet?  Still a god, though.

The End of the Story

09.22.15
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

First off, we’re doing an AMA over at reddit.com/r/books 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)

03.08.15
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 […]
