Keith R.A. DeCandido is the author more than forty-odd novels, a mess of short stories, a smattering of comic books, a bunch of novellas, and the occasional essay. His most recent work includes the novels Unicorn Precinct, the long-awaited sequel to his 2004 high fantasy police procedural Dragon Precinct, and SCPD: The Case of the Claw, first of a new series of novels about cops in a city filled with superheroes; short stories in the Liar Liar, Tales from the House Band, and More Tales of Zorro anthologies; the monthly Farscape comic book, written in collaboration with the TV series creator Rockne S.
