We’re sure you’ll have questions after reading the eighth and penultimate novel of the Expanse series. Chiefly, “When is the next book, Orbit!?” Well, we can’t tell you that yet, but we can tell you about the new Expanse FAQ we created to answer all your frequently asked questions. Check it out and bookmark the page while you’re there. The explosive ending of the bestselling Expanse series is one you’re NOT going to want to miss.
Fans of The Expanse: We know that you have been looking forward to TIAMAT’S WRATH this December. But because we are now entering the home stretch of this amazing series and we all want to make sure we get it right, we have asked the authors to give our editorial and sales teams some extra time to prepare for the launch.
The new publication date will be in March 2019. We know you’re going to love this next chapter, and thank you for your patience.
We are very excited to reveal the cover for TIAMAT’S WRATH (coming out in December 2018), the eighth novel in James S.A. Corey’s New York Times bestselling Expanse series – the third season of the television series premiers April 11th on Syfy in the US and Space in Canada.

Congratulations to this year’s Hugo Award winners and finalists — including our own N. K. Jemisin, whose The Obelisk Gate (US | UK | AUS) won Best Novel, while James S. A. Corey’s The Expanse series (US | UK | AUS) won Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form with The Expanse: “Leviathan Wakes,” written by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, directed by Terry McDonough (SyFy)!
We’re excited to be able to share the cover for Babylon’s Ashes (coming out in June 2016), the sixth novel in James S.A. Corey’s New York Times bestselling Expanse series – now a new original series from the Syfy Channel, premiering December 14th 2015.
A revolution brewing for generations has begun in fire. It will end in blood.
The Free Navy – a violent group of Belters in black-market military ships – has crippled the Earth and begun a campaign of piracy and violence among the outer planets. The colony ships heading for the thousand new worlds on the far side of the alien ring gates are easy prey, and no single navy remains strong enough to protect them.
James Holden and his crew know the strengths and weaknesses of this new force better than anyone. Outnumbered and outgunned, the embattled remnants of the old political powers call on the Rocinante for a desperate mission to reach Medina Station at the heart of the gate network.
But the new alliances are as flawed as the old, and the struggle for power has only just begun. As the chaos grows, an alien mystery deepens. Pirate fleets, mutiny, and betrayal may be the least of the Rocinante’s problems. And in the uncanny spaces past the ring gates, the choices of a few damaged and desperate people may determine the fate of more than just humanity.
If you haven’t started the series then don’t delay!

“Abaddon’s Gate is literary space opera at its absolute best…” io9
Things started simply enough: a ship is found mysteriously abandoned by its crew, but we’ve all watched and read enough space adventures to know that nothing is ever quite so simple. With each twist and page-turning sequence, the Expanse series has grown to become an absolute gem of the subgenre and today, the latest novel ABADDON’S GATE (US | UK | AUS), begins hitting bookshelves. Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, the writing team behind James S.A. Corey, knocked it out of the park once again as you’ll see in the terrific reviews the novel has already gotten.
“High adventure equaling the best space opera has to offer, cutting-edge technology, and a group of unforgettable characters bring the third installment of Corey’s epic space drama (after Caliban’s War and Leviathan Wakes) to an action-filled close while leaving room for more stories to unfold. Perhaps one of the best tales the genre has yet to produce…” Library Journal (Starred Review)
“Corey (a shared pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck) delivers a politically complex and pulse-pounding page-turner to continue the Expanse space opera series.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“Courageous and audacious, with short chapters, smart characters, and a snappy narrative, it’s leaps and bounds bigger and better than the vast majority of space opera. And the fun is undoubtedly far from done.” – The Speculative Scotsman
