Syndication

In 2015, Joe Books released the first book of Keith’s “Tales of Asgard” trilogy, in which Keith got to write Marvel Comics’ version of the Norse gods in prose form. That first book was Marvel’s Thor: Dueling with Giants. In 2016, Book 2 came out, entitled Marvel’s Sif: Even Dragons Have Their Endings. This month, the thrilling conclusion will be released, and Keith will talk all about the trilogy in general and the final volume, Marvel’s Warriors Three: Godhood’s End in particular, including reading an excerpt from the novel.

 

Keith has always loved Norse mythology, as it’s also provided the backbone of his cycle of urban fantasy stories set in Key West, Florida. He owes that interest primarily to Marvel’s portrayals of them, and it was the thrill of a lifetime to get to write them.

Looking back at Keith’s first short story collection, Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido. Published by Dark Quest Books in 2015, it includes 11 of Keith’s stories, from the shared worlds of Viral and V-Wars to stories that originally saw print in Furry Fantastic, Liar Liar, Defending the Future: Best-Laid Plans, Amazing Stories, and The Fedoras Literary Review, as well as two previously unpublished stories and new stories in the worlds of Dragon Precinct and Cassie Zukav, weirdness magnet.

 

In addition to telling the story of this collection, Keith reads two stories from it: the new Cassie story, “Seven-Mile Race,” and one of the unpublished ones, “Behold a White Tricycle,” a story originally written for the never-published 44 Clowns: 11 Stories of the 4 Clowns of the Apocalypse. (Don’t say I didn’t warn you…)

Keith is back with a new episode of Dead Kitchen Radio and just in time to celebrate an anniversary.  Ten years ago, Keith was one of several authors who contributed to the Simon & Shuster Star Trek series known as "A Time For..."  Along with authors such as Robert Greenberger and David Mack, Keith crafted this story of the crew of the Enterprise-E.  Keith talks about his contribution and working with the other authors in the series.
 
In addition, Keith also talks about his newest Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a new Gan Brightblade story in his Dragon Precinct universe.  There's plenty of time to be a part of it.
