New KRAD interview

My new interview with Keith R.A. DeCandido is now online over at Unreality SF. Concerning Star Trek we talked about The Unhappy Ones, his novella in the Seven Deadly Sins anthology, and his Alien Spotlight comic Klingons: Four Thousand Throats...

A little teaser about the Seven Deadly Sins story:

“In the 23rd century, the workers in a mine engage in civil unrest after two murders,” says Keith, giving us a short teaser for the story. “A QuchHa' (no forehead ridges) is murdered, but it's ruled an accident with little investigation; in retaliation, the HemQuch (with forehead ridges) who likely killed the QuchHa' is also murdered, but his killer is condemned to death. This leads to riots and violence beyond the capaibility of the mine supervisor and his security chief to handle, so the Klingon Defense Force sends in three QuchHa' captains to deal with it: Kor, Kang, and Koloth.”
Beside that we also talked about his upcoming Supernatural novel Heart of the Dragon, his Starcraft: Ghost Academy manga, and his work on the Farscape comic line.

You can find the full interview here.

Thanks.

The whole New Timeline novels disaster has pretty much nixed my plans for the middle of the year, but I have an idea or two to fill the gap.

Re: New KRAD interview

I got a chance to listen to snippets of KRAD's new stuff at Dragoncon this past year so I'm already looking forward to his Supernatural book and (even though I've never had any interest in Starcraft...) I liked what I heard of Ghost Academy enough to give it a look.

The Zorro short story he read was a personal favorite though as it evoked memories of watching the old shows with my dad. Any clue on when that anthology is due? I lost track of it.

(Thanks again to KRAD for reading everything he brought with him, especially on an empty stomach. I certainly had a great time.)

Re: New KRAD interview

Thank you for that read. That was a very nice segue between the Supernatural and Star trek tie-in novels. A little sad to be reminded about Marco Palmieri, although it was good to see him mentioned in the article. I am looking forward to ST: Seven Deadly Sins and whatever else the 'hack' brings into my Star Trek universe.

I've actually got a message into the editor asking about that, 'cause I'd like to know, too!

Actually Vulcan would be more like it as they rarely need sleep.
