Ma seule exprience avec la plume de Daniel Abraham sur La Voie du Dragon ne m'a pas donn envie d'aller plus loin dans la lecture de ses autres uvres, mais je guette l'adaptation avec curiosit. SyFy qui se remet faire du space op d'envergure, a fait plaisir et a fait remonter de bons souvenirs au fan de BSG que je suis.

Miam! Je me payerai probablement les romans et je regarderai la srie! La plume de Daniel Abraham ne me drange pas donc je pense que je peux me pencher un peu plus dans ses oeuvres. smile

SyFy qui se remet faire du space op d'envergure, a fait plaisir et a fait remonter de bons souvenirs au fan de BSG que je suis.

Entirement d'accord avec toi. Moi aussi, j'ai une monte de bons souvenirs de BSG. J'espre maintenant que cette srie sera la hauteur de nos esprances.

Des cendres, un feu s'veillera. Des ombres, une lumire jaillira; Renouvele sera l'pe qui fut brise, Le sans-couronne sera de nouveau roi

Re: The Expanse - James S. A. Corey (romans et srie)

Heres author James S. A. Corey with the scoop on how it all came about:

So heres what happened.

A few years back the Expanse books were out and doing pretty well, which was cool.  Through our agent, we had a television agent in Hollywood a fella named Brian Lipson who was there to address any inquiries about the film and TV rights.  That was a really pleasant place to be.  We had a good publisher, a series that was getting good reviews, and a plan for what the next few books could look like. The rest of that the TV guy, the rights, that stuff it was the same level of CYA as flossing your teeth and doing your taxes.  Its what you do because its what you do, not because we expected anything to come from it.

And then there was this party in Los Angeles and Jason Brown and Ben Cook had a conversation.  Jason had been looking for something in the science fiction line, and Ben passed on a recommendation of this book hed read and liked called Leviathan Wakes.  And in an unexpected twist Jason talked to people Ty knew from Game of Thrones about wanting to adapt Leviathan Wakes and those people emailed Ty and said do you know this guy named Jason wants to buy your book.  So that was weird.

So then our TV guy Brian called us and told us that the books were getting some interest, and that hed been looking specifically for folks who had screenwriters already lined up as part of the deal.  We had some phone conversations with a few sets of folks, and one of them was Jason Brown.  He worked with the producer Sean Daniel, who could bring the writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby to the table, the guys who wrote the first Iron Man movie and Children of Men.  They werent the only good writers in the mix, but they were the only ones who wrote Iron Man and Children of Men.  We managed to mostly keep our cool, nod sagely and say, yeah, they seem good.  Lets go with them. And then after we got off the phone we could talk about how cool it was that guys like that would be fans of our books.

And then we were out in Los Angeles on a different trip when Mark and Hawk were there, so Ben Cook and Jason Brown got all of us together for lunch and we talked about the books, and what we had in mind for them, and what the themes were that we saw in them, and what the themes were that they saw in them, and what the end of the last book was, and what the secrets were that wed hidden in the first couple books and what they meant and the back stories of the main characters that we hadnt laid out.  And then, before too long, it wasnt lunch anymore, so we had dinner too.  Mark and Hawk who had lives and families eventually left, but we kept Jason and Ben for another few hours trying out the bars drink selections and geeking about how much fun it would be to make a TV show.  Haha, will never happen, lets joke around about it.  So I guess the joke was on us.

Mark and Hawk had and have a hell of a job.  They took the books and our conversation (along with a few more we had) and with Jason and Sean Daniel, they worked up a pitch to take to production companies.  When the time came to go make the sale, we rode along to answer any questions folks had about the underlying material.  And there was a week last summer when we were out in LA meeting with a bunch of companies Sean Daniel and Jason Brown had lined up.  As I recall it was six or seven meetings in something like four days.  And one of them was Alcon.  We tried to stay quiet, answer questions when asked, and not constantly blurt out Holy crap are you seriously talking about turning our book into a TV show?  They consider those outbursts unbecoming.

So picture youre sitting in a conference room with the guys that wrote Iron Man and seeing if maybe Sharon Hall (whose last big project was developing a show called Breaking Bad) and Ben Roberts (formerly an executive on Walking Dead) would like to do business with you.  It was like that, only if anything weirder.

Turned out they did.  They bought the option from us and Mark and Hawk started writing a script.  Mark and Hawk came out to Albuquerque and hung out for a few days, while we talked about everything from how thrust gravity works to what the differences are between the ships to the mixed time sequence of the prologue of Leviathan Wakes (heres a hint: when Julie hears the weapons firing, youre already several chapters in).  Slowly, carefully, they put together a take on Leviathan Wakes that was perfectly true to the book and also absolutely their own.  There is nothing cooler than seeing something youve made inspiring someone else to make something in a different medium that catches everything you intended and makes it work without it being locked into it.  Its what I imagine dancing would be like if we could dance for crap.

Then there was the long gap when a bunch of very serious people had a bunch of very serious conversations and we sat quietly and tried not to freak out.  We knew there were meetings with a lot of very impressive names (none of which Ill mention here) about who would buy this TV show.

And then, last Friday the word came down.  Syfy fought to the top of the pile, and had ordered a full first season of the show.  Were on.

So, like that.

Dsol, en anglais. wink

Re: The Expanse - James S. A. Corey (romans et srie)

Des infos sur la srie, trs rassurantes en elles-mmes :

I went to a book signing in Denver tonight with both guys.  It was fantastic, if a little sparsely attended.  Neither seemed bummed about the attendance, and had the same thought that myself and the guy I was talking to before it started did - this will be their last tour with any intimate events like this.  So, if you can definitely hit up the events in your area.



WRT the television show:

    They've spent the last six weeks in LA working with the showrunners on developing the show.  Does that ever happen in Hollywood?
    No.
    So why did it happen in this instance?  Because of SyFy desire to make this a high quality show, not just for the show's sake, but to also help get them back into the quality sci-fi programming business and to recapture the BSG viewership.
    They talked a bit about the new network leadership (which I talked about in the thread in entertainment), and their dedication to turning things around.
    Because of this new direction at the network, Dan and Ty chose SyFy.  SyFy was not the only network that wanted to adapt it, and they made SyFy work to get it.
    If that doesn't give you hope for the series, then fuck you.
    No casting info was given, nor did anybody ask.
    When asked if it would be one book per season, Dan cryptically replied that "Leviathan Wakes is a long, dense book, and they gave us a ten hour (episode) order."
    The show will be called The Expanse.

Abaddon's Gate, le tome 3 de la srie de romans The Expanse, vient de recevoir le Locus du Meilleur Roman SF 2014.
L'Eveil du Lviathan (tome 1) figurait sur la liste des finalistes pour ce prix en 2012, tout comme Caliban's War (tome 2) en 2013.
Comme quoi suffit de persvrer.

Re: The Expanse - James S. A. Corey (romans et srie)

Perso, j'ai lu un peu plus de 100 pages et a se lit trs bien. Il y a un petit ct "old school" (ou alors, c'est moi qui lis trop rarement du space opera), mais ce n'est pas du tout un point ngatif !
On se laisse prendre trs vite dans l'histoire.
