When We Were Heroes

01.16.13
by Daniel Abraham

My new story in the Wild Cards universe (starring my very own morally-fallen trust-fund anti-superhero Jonathan “Bugsy” Tipton-Clarke and Carrie Vaughn’s Curveball). Come for the superheroic antics, stay for the coffee-shop analysis of Peter Weiss’ Marat/Sade. With thanks to George RR Martin and Melinda Snodgrass who edit the work in that project, John Picacio for the amazing art, and your friends and mine over ar Tor.com.

Two things you can look at, and a Star Wars update

Daniel and I were interviewed for the January issue of Locus.  If you don’t subscribe, y0u can still see some excerpts on their website.  We discuss our writing process and our love of lurid adventure tales.  If you want to know about those two things, you can give it a peek. Also, you can listen to our voices as we talk about pretty much the same stuff on the Machine Readable podcast from Mile Hi Con. Ground has been broken […]

Work Process

Our good friend Max told me he was building a flow chart of the James Corey writing process.  Now, Max is a smart guy, and a guy with significant technical skills, so I was thinking this could get pretty complicated.  Two writers, working from outline with multiple editing passes?  That could be tough to flowchart out. The one Max sent to me is a bit simplified, and I’m not sure how often we actually make the right choice on the […]

A Brief Aside For Science

12.08.12
by Daniel Abraham

So I read this morning about folks who are taking what seems to me the only sane path toward strong AI:  making something that does what brains do, and seeing what happens. I have a few reactions to this on the general subject of neuroscience and cognitive theories.  The first is Woo hoo!  I love science.  I love the systematic discovery of how the universe works and what it does, and especially the counterintuitive parts where it turns out nothing […]

The Long Price Quartet in Paperback (At Last)

11.28.12
by Daniel Abraham

Well, today’s the day. To those of you who’ve followed my long and storied career may remember that a few years back, I suffered something of a setback. My first series of books was a four book story called the Long Price Quartet.  The sales were decent.  I earned out my contract.  And the reviews were great. “I listed these among the best books of the last decade in the poll, and I really think they are. I recommend them […]

Jimmy Corey and My Face on a Tube

So there are a few ways to track me and Ty on the various social media sites.  I’m on Facebook under my own name (http://www.facebook.com/profoundsigh) and Twitter (@AbrahamHanover).  Ty’s on Google+ (https://plus.google.com/109283350355217542476/posts). BUT Your friends and mine at Orbit have put up a professional site over on Facebook just for James SA Corey.   It’s at https://www.facebook.com/JamesSACorey and they’re looking at putting some cool James SA Corey related stuff up there.  Exclusive excerpts, cover art, possibly even the very exclusive James […]
