Keith R. A. DeCandido
KEITH R. A. DeCANDIDO’s first published fiction was a Spider-Man short story in 1994 entitled “An Evening in the Bronx with Venom,” which had the Marvel Comics hero working in tandem with the NYPD. He has returned to the theme of mixing police procedure with elements of the fantastic several times, including in two Spider-Man novels (Venom’s Wrath and Down These Mean Streets), other licensed universes (Supernatural: Nevermore, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Blackout), and in his other original fiction (the high-fantasy police procedural Dragon Precinct, which has spawned a half-dozen short stories and the sequel novels Unicorn Precinct and the forthcoming Goblin Precinct)—plus, of course, in the novel you’re reading.
Keith has written more than forty-five novels, plus dozens of novellas, short stories, comic books, essays, and articles. When he isn’t writing, he’s editing (he has ten anthologies to his credit), practicing karate (he achieved his first-degree black belt in 2009), meandering around the Internet (his web site is DeCandido.net, his blog is kradical.livejournal.com, and he is on Twitter and Facebook under the username KRADeC), and following his beloved New York Yankees. He lives in New York City with several humans and animals.
