Local Fantasy/Space Opera Writer at Page 1

Daniel Abraham, best-selling local fantasy and space opera author, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, June 25, to talk about and sign his latest epic fantasy novel, The Spider's War: The Dagger and the Coin Book 5, which marks the conclusion to this series.

The book is described as such: "Lord Regent Geder Palliako's great war has spilled across the world, nation after nation falling before the ancient priesthood and weapon of dragons. But even as conquest follows conquest, the final victory retreats before him like a mirage. Schism and revolt begin to erode the foundations of the empire, and the great conquest threatens to collapse into a permanent conflict of all against all. In Carse, with armies on all borders, Cithrin bel Sarcour, Marcus Wester and Clara Kalliam are faced with the impossible task of bringing a lasting peace to the world. Their tools: traitors high in the imperial army, the last survivor of the dragon empire, and a financial scheme that is either a revolution or the greatest fraud in the history of the world."

Abraham is the author of the critically-acclaimed Long Price Quartet. He has been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula and World Fantasy awards, and won the International Horror Guild award. He also writes as MLN Hanover and (with Ty Franck) James S.A. Corey. Corey's space opera books have been turned into "The Expanse" TV series on the SyFy Channel, which has been renewed for a second season. He lives in Albuquerque with his family.
