What’s on the Expanse Timeline?

The Expanse timeline consists of all of the books written by James S. A. Corey, which is a pen name for novelists Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, who co-write the series. The books were recently picked up by SyFy as a television series, which has well-received so far. You can also find a few short stories and novellas to flesh out the story, particularly a few that act as prequels to the main series. As with any of our timelines, please let us know if there’s something else we can do to improve upon what we have. We welcome all new feedback.
