Publisher's Summary

Joining us at Audible Studios are Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, who, together, are James S. A. Corey, the authors of The Expanse series. The science fiction series takes place in a near future where humanity has colonised much of the solar system but has not yet mastered interstellar travel.  

Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham both live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where they met through mutual friends and began writing and gaming together. Having already built the world of The Expanse for a game (it was initially created for an MMORPG pitch), the pair set out on a task to bring the world to life through fiction. Their first novel, Leviathon Wakes, was published in 2011 and was nominated for the 2012 Hugo Boss Award for Best Novel and the 2012 Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.   

The pair have gone on to release eight full novels within the series, with the ninth and final due to publish in 2020. The duo have also published several short stories and novellas between the main story. The Expanse series was picked up for television in 2014 and is now in its fourth series, with a fifth to come. Daniel and Ty work closely on this as writers and producers.  

We spoke to Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, a.k.a. James S. A. Corey, about The Expanse and their inspiration for it, how they write as a team, what they think fans will think of the ending and what their plans are for the future.

How two authors wrote the Expanse series.

The Expanse is one of the greatest modern science fiction series. It is fascinating to hear the two authors explain the collaborative writing process that created this 9 novel masterpiece.

Talented interviewer

I enjoyed listening to this brief introduction to the authors. It’s unusual to have two authors collaborate on a nine book series and a TV show. I wished the interview was longer because the authors were interesting and the process fascinating.

Great series!

I came into the books being current on the series as of season 3. It was up in the air whether or not the show was going to be continued so I had to get into the books to see how it ended. I absolutely love the TV adaption but the books are so much more in depth. It would be loved by anyone who enjoys the genre and anyone who loves stories that are based on depth of character

Insightful and fun interview

Short but very insightful interview with the creators of The Expanse novels. They talk about how they started collaborating, who writes which part and what got them into SciFi in the first place. As a huge Expanse fan, I enjoyed it!
