Event Description

Local New Mexican author Daniel Abraham aka James S.A. Corey will appear at the Jean Cocteau to read from the latest title in his The Dagger and the Coin Quintet, The Widow's House.  Fans of George R.R. Martin's Wild Cards, graphic novel series know him as the author of Wild Cards: The Hard Call.  He'll also read from his newly released Cibola Burn written in collaboration with Ty Franck under the pseudonym James S.A. Corey.  An interview/Q&A session facilitated by George R.R. Martin will be followed by book signing.

The Widow's House follows a powerful Lord who can conquer everything but, a woman's love.  A loyal traitor whose sons reside on all sides of the conflict and an inquisitive banker.  It's the most recent installment in an epic fantasy series that flows in a vein similar to that of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.

Cibola Burn is the fourth book in The Expanse series.  It resumes the space-opera saga which originates with the Hugo nominated Leviathan Wakes.  A gateway has been opened to thousands of habitable planets.  A new rush of human colonization that repeats earth's early history is taking place again on a much greater scale.  It addresses themes which continue to persist, such as racism/bigotry, aggressive nationalism and corporate conglomeration.

Daniel Abraham is a prolific Science Fiction and Fantasy writers today who happens to reside in  Albuquerque, NM.  In addition to being nominated for the Hugo Award's 'Best Novel,' the aforementioned Leviathan Wakes was nominated for the 2012 Best Science Fiction Novel, Locus Award as well.  He's also had novelettes nominated for Nebula and World Fantasy Awards.
