2018 Farpoint Con EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Keith DeCandido

April 25, 2018


Keith DeCandido has been a prolific writer since the mid-nineties. Mostly writing novel tie-ins for big media properties such as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Supernatural, Keith is best known for his IKV Gorkon novels, a series of stories set in the Star Trek The Next Generation universe and which centers around a crew of Klingons as they roam the universe in a never ending search for honor and glory.

In 2004, Keith published his first original novel, Dragon Precinct , a police procedural novel set in a high fantasy world.  Since that time, Keith has since written and published four sequels, with the latest, Mermaid Precinct , hitting the shelves in 2017. Keith has also created the Super City Cops series, a police procedural series that focuses on the police officers who have to deal with the problems involved in having a large super hero population concentrated in their city.  

In my sit down interview with the native New Yorker, we discuss a number of topics: his background as an accomplished martial artist, his literary career (both past and present), and his music career as a member of the band, Boogie Knights.  Check it out below…
