James S. A. Corey
James S. A. Corey is the pen name used by collaborators Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, authors of the science fiction series The Expanse. The first and last name are taken from Abraham's and Franck's middle names, respectively, and S. A. are the initials of Abraham's daughter. The name is also meant to emulate many of the space opera writers of the 1970s. In Germany, their books are published under the name James Corey with the middle initials omitted. Under the pen name James S. A. Corey, fantasy author Daniel Abraham began to collaborate with personal assistant to George R. R. Martin Ty Franck in 2011. Together they wrote Leviathan Wakes (2011), the first science fiction novel in the series The Expanse. The authors began to release other novels in the series including Caliban's War (2012), Abaddon's Gate (2013), Cibola Burn (2014), Nemesis Games (2015), Babylon's Ashes (2016), and Persepolis Rising (2017). Between each pair of full-length books they published shorter works in the series. The first, a short story entitled "The Butcher of Anderson Station: A Story of The Expanse" was released as an eBook in October 2011. A 69-page novella, Gods of Risk followed, and was released as an eBook on September 2012. A short story entitled "Drive" was released in November 2012 as a part of the anthology Edge of Infinity. Another novella, The Churn, was released April 29, 2014. All are set in The Expanse series. The authors have also written a Star Wars novel, Honor Among Thieves and a short story unrelated to The Expanse titled "A Man Without Honor", included in the anthology Old Mars, edited by George R. R. Martin.
