Keith R.A. DeCandido

Keith R.A. DeCandido is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his career as a fiction writer, during which he was authored a ridiculous amount of fiction — or an amount of ridiculous fiction, depending on who you ask. His recent and upcoming work includes the Alien novel Isolation, based on the movie series and the 2014 videogame; Mermaid Precinct, the latest in his acclaimed fantasy police procedural series; A Furnace Sealed, debuting his new urban fantasy series taking place in the Bronx; assorted writings on pop culture for Tor.com; and short stories in bunches of anthologies, among them Unearthed, Thrilling Adventure Yarns, Brave New Girls: Adventures of Gals & Gizmos, Across the Universe, and Release the Virgins! Keith is also an editor (for clients both personal and corporate), a musician (currently percussionist for the parody band Boogie Knights), a martial artist (a third-degree black belt in karate), and possibly some other stuff he can’t recall due to the lack of sleep.
