A Visit From Jimmy...

... or, Leviathan Shows Up. Eventually.

We had a fun afternoon at the JCC with Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. You shoulda been there. They talked, they answered questions, they signed books, they swilled down the Protomolecule.

For those who could not make it, we have hardcover copies of BABYLON'S ASHES signed by both halves of James S.A. Corey available through the Jean Cocteau website. Along with the earlier books in the Expanse series, plus Daniel's solo fantasies THE DAGGER AND THE COIN, and various cool Wild Cards titles autographed by one or t'other of them, along with yours truly and various and sundry other Wild Cards writers.

These titles and many others available from the JCC.

Happy reading.

Mr. Martin, just wanted to thank you for all that you do. Hosting various authors, poets, movies, and the sort at JCC - though I wish I could attend - and your work. It's a huge inspiration to a young writer such as myself (twelfth grade), seeing friendship and connection between writers, and your writing hones my desire to create a work of my own.

Once again: thank you, from me and writers and readers alike, for keeping us happy. You are appreciated.

That Jimmy Thing!

I wish that I could have been there. It sounds like it was fun.

I have really enjoyed Danaiel's The Dagger and The Coin series, and am kind of sad that it is finished now. It is like saying good bye to an old friend.

As for The Expanse, love it, love it, love it!

In fact The Expanse is on my Hugo Award nomination ballot this year for the "Best Series" Hugo Award. Fingers crossed!

Re: That Jimmy Thing!
You can also nominate BABYLON'S ASHES for Best Novel, the entire first season of the TV show in Long Form Drama, and certain selected individual episodes (those first telecast in 2016) in Short Form. I'd suggest "Leviathan Wakes," the season one finale, for that.

As for Best Series... I like WILD CARDS myself, but I'm hardly objective.

Upload it?
Hi George, big fan of The Expanse. Any chance you filmed the event and plan to upload it?

Afraid not.

We did live stream a portion of it. You can go to the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe Facebook page and see a part of it.

The Expanse
I just watched episode 5 season2 of The Expanse..

I have been waiting 60 years(!) for this, a really good solar system science fiction story. The Expanse is it!

I have been watching this , on Amazon (so I don’t have to put up with the ads) , this solar system space opera, is probably better than Star Trek ever was (and I love Star Trek). The influences here are really the SF of John W. Campbell and verisimilitude of a host of SF writers as developed in the 40s and 50s.
Season 2 is better than season 1. Can’s say it is perfect but this stuff is very familiar to old time readers , like me.
I am impressed.

RE: The Expanse
I agree. Great work.

The Expanse deserves Hugo nominations. Best novel and best drama short form both.

Re: The Expanse
I should have said science fiction TV show ... this visual narrative has inherited the spirit and substance of modern SF prose of John Campbell's ASF as it came into being in 1938! (And other magazines later.)
