Orbit to Publish Three More Novels in Hugo Award-Nominated "Expanse" Series


PRESS RELEASE
Orbit to Publish Three More Novels in Hugo Award-Nominated








Orbit announced today the acquisition of three new novels by James S.A. Corey, to be books 7-9 in their New York Times bestselling and Hugo Award-nominated "Expanse" series. Orbit publishes the series in the US and UK, and editions are sold worldwide.

James S.A. Corey is the pseudonym for co-authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. Daniel Abraham is also the solo author of other novels, including the critically acclaimed "Dagger and the Coin" series.


LEVIATHAN WAKES, the first "Expanse" novel, was first published by Orbit in 2011 and was nominated for a Hugo Award the following year. It was followed by CALIBAN'S WAR and ABADDON'S GATE, a New York Times bestseller. Book four in the series, CIBOLA BURN, is on sale today.

Authors Ty Franck and Daniel Abraham said of the deal, "We always knew this was an ambitious project, and we're very pleased that we're going to have enough room to tell the whole story. Orbit has been incredibly supportive of the series, and we're happy that we get to keep working with such talented, dedicated people."

Acquiring editor Will Hinton said, "It's thrilling to have more books in one of the great series in science fiction and an enormous pleasure to continue working with a writing duo as talented as Ty and Daniel."

Syfy recently announced an order for ten episodes of a TV show to be based on LEVIATHAN WAKES, the pilot of which will be scripted by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, known for their scripts for Iron Man and Children of Men.

Books five and six in the "Expanse" series will be published in June of 2015 and 2016. The newly-acquired novels are slated for June of 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Mira Grant to Complete "Parasitology" Series and Return to "Newsflesh" Series in New Novels and Novellas from Orbit


Orbit announced today the acquisition of two new novels and four original novellas from multiple Hugo Award-nominated author Mira Grant. One of the novels will be a third book in the "Parasitology" series, following the Hugo Award-nominated Parasite and Symbiont, and will conclude the trilogy, while the second novel and all four novellas will be set in the world of the "Newsflesh" series.

Mira Grant is a pseudonym of Seanan McGuire, winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for best new writer. Orbit published the first book under the Grant pseudonym, Feed, in 2010, and the following year it became her first Hugo Award-nominated novel. The sequels, Deadline and Blackout, were also nominated for the award. McGuire has also received a shared Hugo Award for Best Fancast for her work on the SF Squeecast.

Parasite is a finalist for the 2014 Hugo Award, the fourth Best Novel nomination for the Mira Grant name. Grant's science fiction writing has been praised as "Horrifying, riveting, and a bit too plausible" (Library Journal, starred review of Parasite) and "exceptionally creepy" (Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Parasite).

Editor Will Hinton said, "It's a dream to work with an author like Seanan and it's thrilling to have more Mira Grant books to look forward to. I know her readers will be as excited as I am to return to the "Parasitology" trilogy and the beloved "Newsflesh" series, and explore entirely new territory in a standalone novel."

Symbiont, book two in the "Parasitology" series, will be published in Fall 2014. The "Parasitology" series is set in a near-future world where parasites have nearly eliminated human disease, but dependence on them may prove to be disastrous.

Seanan McGuire said of the deal, "I am overjoyed to be able to continue to write in the Parasite universe, and more, I am so, so excited to return to the world of Kellis-Amberlee, the Rising, and my unique approach to future journalism. I hope that everyone else will be as excited as I am to go back there, and I promise I have some thrilling surprises in store for you. As for that stand-alone third novel, well... You'll have to wait and see what that's going to be about. I can tell you one thing for sure: it's going to be an adventure."

The newly-acquired book three in the "Parasitology" series is currently scheduled for Fall 2015, while the first two "Newsflesh" novellas are slated for release in Summer 2014 and Summer 2015.
