  1. What right thinking person DOESN’T want it? 🙂

  2. I’m crying right now, you don’t even know.

  3. Omg. I can’t wait for this. Any hints at a release date?!

  4. Between reindeer and hunger, there is only… NEMESIS.

  5. That’s so““`You guys are so quick!! I am still translating Caliban’s War, I must keep up with the pace.

    • Hello Yijun,

      I am still translating “Caliban’s War” in French, and I quite agree with you.

      Why not create the “IGOTET” : International Guilde Of The Expanse Translators? 😉

      Could be a very good idea, when you think about it…

  6. there’s a couch in the den, in a wood-pressed paneled room, with a black-and-white television recessed into the wall. mom and i share one couch, my sister is on the other.

    star trek is on and we’re focused on the episode.

    now that couch is gone, my sister lives in south carolina, my mom (and dad) are buried not 10 miles away from where i live in new york.

    star trek is in reruns.

    and the episode grew, a thousand fold.

  7. Can’t wait. Will there be any more short stories released in the interim?

  8. That looks so friggin’ awesome, I absolutely cannot wait. And I already couldn’t wait, so I guess that means I’m pretty damn impressed.

    Best cover so far! How is it every new cover amazes me even more than the last? Your artist is amazing.

  9. When can we pre-order?

  10. So happy to see this!! Are we going to get a loveluy novella in The Expanse series as well?

    I just INHALED The Widow’s House (after Amazon bizarreky failed to deliver my pre-ordered copy on time I happened to be in Portland and picked up a copy at Powell’s while on a business trip. Needless to say, I read the book in its entirety by the time I got back home from my 4-day trip!

    So the sad part is that there’s no new Corey/Abraham work before June 2015 to look forward to? Wahhhhh.

    • I’m halfway done with Widow’s House myself, and find that I am slowing down to not finish it too fast. It’s the first book of the series where I don’t know everyth9ing that’s going to happen.

  11. That is hot.

    Hope you’re having a great time with it! Cheers!

  12. Ty, the cover art for these books is astonishing. When you first put the preliminary cover art for Leviathan Wakes up, it went up as my wallpaper. This one might be my favorite so far (and not just because of the explosions).

  13. Wow, that’s a really beautiful cover, guys.

  14. Love the cover. Who’s the artist?

  15. Any chance you’ve gone back to the old narrator for this book’s audiobook? I really liked him better

    • Yeah, we don’t pick audiobook narrators. Whoever is publishing them does, and there are a lot of factors involved including, is the person available. On the last book, Jefferson Mays was busy doing a play as I recall.

  16. Hi guys, I bought Leviathan Wakes on a whim on iBooks and absolutely loved it, I have just finished reading Abbadon’s Gate and again loved it – also loved Caliban’s War and am planning to buy Cibola Burns also.
    Will Bobbie Draper ever return to a full length novel? She would make an excellent full time addition to the crew of the Rocinante.
    Keep up the amazing work and good luck from British sci fi fan.

  17. I Also picked up Leviathan Wakes on a wim. Saw George RR Martin name on the cover and he said he liked it. Well one month later I’m done with the Cibola Burns and I’m really sad… ;-).

    Can’t wait for next summer. Cover looks awesome as always.

    Keep up the amazing work guys it’s really very entertaining !!!


  18. The expanse series has fallen into my top favorite book series with JRR Tolkien works of art, Harry Potter and Earthsea Cycle. I cant wait for Nemesis Games.

  19. First thing first, your books have changed the way I think of science fiction, thank you!
    Would love to find out who to contact to express our displeasure in Erik Davies and his Audio Book reading of Cibola Burn? I’m really not trying to be heartless, but it was the only audio book I’ve ever purchased that I literally could not listen to.
    Your amazing story deserves so much more!


  20. Reluctantly purchased Leviathan wakes. It blew me away. So i listened till Abaddon’s gate. Very good narration by Jefferson Mays. But I couldnt listen to Cibola Burn. I had to read the book instead. Its feels weird not to have an accent for Avasarala (who is by far my favourite character in this series).Please bring back Jefferson Mays for Nemesis Games. Btw you guys are doing great job. Cant wait for the next one.Cheers

  21. Yeah, Sorry but Erik Davies really has an irritating narration style. His sentences are broken up with weird pauses in all the wrong spots. Sometimes it feels like every word has been read separately and strung together afterwards with out of sync inflections. Very distracting to be honest.
