"If the Trek franchise has a future, it lies with people like Keith DeCandido; writers who can balance continuity and innovation, capturing our imagination with something new while remaining firmly rooted in the shared mythology we've grown up with."
---Tom Holt, TV Zone #182
Really. See, my parents were fans of Star Trek during its original run from 1966-1969. They liked it so much, they kept watching it in reruns -- especially since they hadn't always been able to catch it during the first run (they were in college at the time).
I was born in April 1969, so I caught pretty much all of them in reruns. It became a nightly ritual: at 6pm, we'd sit in front of the TV to catch that night's airing on New York City's Channel 11.
"Many fans wonder about the unfinished portions of the tapestry that is the Star Trek universe. There are thousands of unanswered questions. Author and editor Keith R.A. DeCandido obviously loves to play in that big sandbox. He is entirely at home with both the setting and the characters. His writing exhibits an innate curiosity about that universe and the creativity to recognize the stories just waiting to be told within it."Fast forward thirty years. I have remained a Star Trek fan throughout the intervening years -- watching, and later taping, the reruns; reading the James Blish novelizations, the Pocket and Bantam novels, and various and sundry comics; seeing all the movies opening week; eagerly watching the spinoffs The Next Generation and later Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise. And I've got a good career as a novelist going. And, finally, I find myself writing Star Trek. Thus far, I've had a variety of material in book, comic book, and eBook form published, with a whole mess of spiffy stuff to be unleashed on a panting reading public over the next couple of years. (I've done several interviews about my Trek work on the web: at Trek Nation -- one by Jim Zimmerman, one by Michelle Erica Green -- LCARScom.net, About.com, StarTrek.com, and TrekWeb.com.)

"Keith R. A. DeCandido [is a] veritable engine of Trek tale-telling."I have created a page for each of these projects. They arranged in more-or-less alphabetical order:
