Meet our readers: Andrew Willett

            

Andrew Willett was raised in the eastern suburbs of San Francisco, which felt a lot like the part of the Spielberg movie before the aliens and monsters show up. An editor at The New York Times, he's been a New Yorker for twenty-odd years and can't imagine living anywhere else. His fiction has appeared in the anthology Thoughtcrime Experiments and, most recently, the finalists' anthology from this year's Saints and Sinners Literary Festival.

Meet our readers: Keith R.A. DeCandido

            

Keith R.A. DeCandido has been writing professionally since 1994, which means he's been doing it for 23 years. He could've sworn he was a young turk of publishing just yesterday, and is rather appalled to see that he is now a grizzled veteran, and is well on his way to being an old fart. Still, he's got more than 50 novels, almost 100 short stories, a mess of comic books, and tons of nonfiction to show for those 23 years.

His recent and upcoming work includes the Marvel's "Tales of Asgard" trilogy of prose novels, including Marvel's Thor: Dueling with Giants, Sif: Even Dragons Have Their Endings, and Warriors Three: Godhood's End; the Stargate SG-1 novel Kali's Wrath; 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; three novellas in the Super City Cops series, Avenging Amethyst, Undercover Blues, and Secret Identities; the short-story collection Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido; and short stories in the anthologies Aliens: Bug Hunt, Altered States of the Union, Baker Street Irregulars Volumes 1 & 2, A Baker's Dozen of Magic, Joe Ledger: Unstoppable, Limbus Inc. Book 3, Nights of the Living Dead, The Side of Good/The Side of Evil, TV Gods: Summer Programming, V-Wars: Night Terrors, and The X-Files: Trust No One. 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 rewatches of classic TV shows (various series in the Star Trek and Stargate franchises, as well as the 1966 Batman) have been appearing twice weekly on Tor.com since 2011. He's also a professional musician (currently the percussionist for the parody band Boogie Knights), an editor of more than 25 years' standing (working for clients both corporate and private), a second-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. Find out less at DeCandido.net.
