Here’s what I’m thinking for the 2017 schedule for the revival of DKR:
January: Super City Cops novellas: Avenging Amethyst, Undercover Blues, and Secret Identities
February: Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido
March: Baker Street Irregulars: “Identity”
April: Aliens: Bug Hunt: “Deep Background”
A Furnace Sealed Book 1 of the Adventures of Bram Gold the Marvel “Tales of Asgard” trilogy starring Thor, Sif, and the Warriors Three
REDACTED Orphan Black: Classified Clone Report
July: Nights of the Living Dead: “Live and On the Scene”
August: Joe Ledger: Unstoppable: “Ganbatte”
September: Mermaid Precinct
All of that is new material, with the exception of February, in which I will pimp my 2015 short story collection Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido, which contains a brand-new “Precinct” story and a brand-new Cassie Zukav story, one of which I will read on the podcast. June is a project I can’t talk about yet, but it’s due to be out around then, so I should be able to talk about it by then……..
My goal for Dead Kitchen Radio is to revive it in 2017. In 2014, life just got too complicated and I couldn’t keep up the schedule. It was frustrating, as in the early days of the podcast, I didn’t have as much work — the period from 2010-2013 was one of the fallowest in my career — but as I got busier, I had so much more material for the podcast, but not enough time to actually record it. I even had the 42nd episode all planned: I was going to talk about my Sleepy Hollow novel Children of the Revolution, which came out that fall.
Anyhow, I’ve got lots of things to talk about and read for Volume 2 of DKR, including three new Super City Cops novellas, a bunch of short stories in the worlds of Aliens, Joe Ledger, Sherlock Holmes, Night of the Living Dead, and more, plus a look back at some of the nifty work I’ve done in the two-and-a-half years since the podcast went on its rather unfortunate hiatus.
So keep an eye on this here blog, or on DKR‘s Facebook page for updates!
In 2004, Pocket Books published a nine-novel series that chronicled the year leading up to the final Star Trek: The Next Generation movie Nemesis. Featuring work by John Vornholt, Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore, Robert Greenberger, David Mack, and me, this miniseries set the tone for the post-Nemesis fiction that would be published thenceforth.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the publication of the first book in the series in February 2014, I took a look back at the series, its genesis, its execution, its influence, and just generally how much fun we all had putting it together.
