A. are the initials of Abraham's daughter.[1] The name is also meant to emulate many of the space opera writers of the 1970s.[2] In Germany, their books are published under the name James Corey with the middle initials omitted.[3]


Under the pen name James S. A. Corey, fantasy author Daniel Abraham began to collaborate with Ty Franck (who had worked as a personal assistant to George R. R. Martin) in 2011.

The Expanse series was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Series in 2017[10] and won in 2020.[11]

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.[12] A short story entitled Drive was released in November 2012 as a part of the anthology Edge of Infinity.[13] Another novella, The Churn, was released April 29, 2014,[14] and other novellas have followed. All are set in The Expanse series.

The authors have also written a Star Wars novel, Honor Among Thieves, published by Random House in 2014, 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.[15]
