American author Daniel Abraham was born in November, 1969 and lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Abraham writes science fiction and fantasy fiction using three pen names for the different types of fiction he writes. Using his real name, Daniel Abraham writes epic fantasies based in other worlds. When using the pen name MLN Hanover, he writes urban fantasies set in similar worlds to our own world. As James S.A. Corey, he writes science fiction that is set in the far off future. When Abraham writes as Corey, he does so with his writing partner Ty Franck. He has also collaborated with George R.R. Martin, who also lives in New Mexico. Abraham not only writes short stories and novels with Martin, he also adapts Martin’s books, The Game of Thrones series and the novel, Fevre Dream, into graphic novels. Martin has been very important to Abraham’s future as a writer.
Abraham graduated from the Clarion West Writers Workshop in 1998 and has been nominated for many awards for excellent fictional works in science fiction and fantasy. For Leviathan Wakes, June 2012, he was nominated and was the finalist for the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel and the 2012 Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

His fantasy short story, The Cambist and Lord Iron: A Fairy Tale of Economics, May 2007, was the finalist for the 2008 Hugo Award for Best Novelette and the 2008 World Fantasy Award for Best Short Fiction.
The first book Daniel Abraham wrote is called A Shadow In Summer, and it’s also the first book of his first series called The Long Price Quartet. His debut novel made an impression on George R.R. Martin, so much so that he wrote a very encouraging recommendation to spur on the new author. It so happened that the critics agreed with Martin’s evaluation of Abraham’s debut novel, so Abraham was off to an excellent start as a literary newcomer. The book is about the affluent nation of Saraykeht that is powerful because at the center of this civilization is its thriving business and industry. The nation’s economy relies on the power of a constrained spirit called Seedless, who is an andat obliged to Heshai, a poet-sorcerer, for life. The Galts are an empire who is bent on conquering and controlling all lands using the violence of their savage army to overtake them. The Galts never attempted an attack on Saraykeht because it was too strong for the Galts to be triumphant in the past, but that has changed because they’ve discovered a weakness in the powerful nation. If the Galts were to get rid of Heshai, Seedless’s beholden poet-sorcerer, Seedless will be destroyed and the nation will collapse. The Galts implanted secret operatives inside the city to prepare to put their plan into action. But a worker named Otah Machi unknowingly learns about the plot that the Galts had set in motion to destroy Saraykeht. Otah becomes pivotal to the nation’s survival because either he stops the Galts from attacking or the nation will be obliterated. Abraham acquired many fans with this debut novel and they were anticipating a second book by him. This critically acclaimed book would be the first in a successful series.
A Betrayal In Winter is the second book of the Long Price Quartet series and is set fifteen years after the events took place in the first novel of this series. When Otah Machi was younger, he was exiled from the ruling house that belonged to his family. He never returned to Machi until something detrimental threatens his family. Otah’s father, ruler of Machi, is close to death and his oldest brother Biitrah has been the victim of assassination. Now it is necessary for Otah to return to Machi, because he is a surviving son of the ruler, or Khai. Otah has to uphold the traditions of the ruling family so as a son of a dying Khai, he needs to go back to Machi because he has the responsibility of succeeding his father after his death. But something worse is threatening Machi. The Galts, the empire that tried to destroy Saraykeht have joined with a traitor in Machi to bring ruin to the ruling house. The long exiled Otah is accused because he conveniently has a motive for murder. This science fiction book also includes mystery, which his fans welcomed. His fans also saw growth in Abraham as a writer and were excited for a third installment of this series.
Abraham’s The Expanse book series, that he had co-written under the pen name James S. A. Corey, with Ty Franck, has been brought to television when it was adapted into a science fiction television series, by the Alcon Television Group, and is being aired by the Syfy network.
