Corey, James S. A. (pseudonym for Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck). The Expanse. New York City: Orbit, 2015. Called an omnibus by Internet Speculative Fiction Database, which see, as of September 2023, here.[1]

For annotation, see our entry for the TV series. For a discussion of AI and automation in a world/solar system with too many people and too few jobs, and a very stingy form of "universal basic income" (UBI), see citations for, and/or listen to, the "On Point" shows on WBUR-Boston for 12 September 2023 on "Is the rise of AI the best argument for universal basic income?" as of date here,[2] and "'The Expanse' authors on 'the importance of complicating people'" here.[3] These are different uses of an interview on The Expanse and UBI proposals; there's a transcript on the page for UBI.

The book isn't mentioned that we heard, but the social and political implications of "The Third" (or Fourth) "Industrial Revolution were handled in the 1950s in Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano, which see at link.
