Hey Expanse fans. There is a new novella on the horizon set in the universe of James S. A. Corey’s NYT-bestselling Expanse series. AUBERON explores a harsh and alien world and the age-old dangers that humanity has carried with it to the stars. Check out the cover and copy below.
Auberon is one of the first and most important colony worlds in humanity’s reach, and the new conquering faction has come to claim it. Governor Rittenaur has come to bring civilization and order to the far outpost and guarantee the wealth and power of the Empire.
But Auberon already has its own history, a complex culture, and a criminal kingpin named Erich with very different plans. In a world of deceit, violence, and corruption, the greatest danger Rittenaur faces is love.
If you’re a fan of the novels but are new to the short fiction, check out jamessacorey.com for a full list of Expanse side stories. Auberon takes place between PERSEPOLIS RISING (US | UK) and TIAMAT’S WRATH (US | UK) so there is no danger of spoilers if you aren’t caught up to the most recent hardcover.
