Evolution of a Space Epic: James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse: This is the product of several months worth of work, a visit to a film set in Toronto, and lots of interviews. Very happy with how this one came out.

Public service announcement: Apex Publications has discounted War Stories: New Military Science Fiction in light of Veteran’s Day today. You can pick up the book for 40% off the cover price (print and eBook) directly from their website. The sale will run today through midnight tomorrow. If you’ve been looking to pick up a copy, now’s a good opportunity to do so!
In other news, the book has been picking up some very good reviews, which I’m happy about.
The Atlantic Council (via their Art of Future War project) called War Stories “a superb anthology with the kind of diverse insights and compelling narratives that make it a very practical book for national security professionals as much as it is a highly enjoyable read for die-hard military sci-fi fans. ” You can read the rest of the review here, as well as a short interview with Jaym and myself!
SF Book Reviews noted “War Stories is a collection of excellent works and undoubtedly an impressive tome for the bookshelf,” and you can read the rest of the review here.
So, feel free to pick it up!
