Shore Leave 41 Guest: Keith RA DeCandido

Keith RA DeCandido

This is Keith R.A. DeCandido's twentieth consecutive year as a guest of Shore Leave, having first come as an author guest in 2000 when he only had five novels to his name. In 2019, that number has increased by a factor of ten (and then some). His recent and upcoming work includes Mermaid Precinct, the latest in his fantasy/police procedural series; A Furnace Sealed, the first in his new urban fantasy series about a nice Jewish boy from the Bronx who hunts monsters; four novellas in the Super City Cops series; serialized fiction in the world of the game Summoners War; and short stories in the anthologies Thrilling Adventure Yarns (debuting at this very convention), the latest Brave New Girls anthology (ditto), Unearthed, They Keep Killing Glenn (which debuted at last year's Shore Leave), and Release the Virgins! In 2009, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, which means he never needs to achieve anything ever again. His nonfiction on pop culture has appeared in multiple sources, including regularly on Tor.com and Keith's own Patreon (patreon.com/krad), as well as anthologies like the Outside In series, Children of Time: The Companions of Doctor Who, ZLONK! ZOK! ZOWIE: The Subterranean Blue Grotto Guide to Batman '66—Season One, and more. He's also a professional musician (currently the percussionist for Shore Leave regulars the Boogie Knights), an editor of more than 25 years' standing (working for clients both corporate and private), a third-degree black belt in karate (which he teaches to both children and adults), and probably some other stuff that he can't remember due to the lack of sleep.
