some quick plugs.....

Just to do a bit of self-promotion:

On sale now is Star Trek: Myriad Universes: Echoes and Refractions, which includes three short novels featuring alternate-universe takes on the Trek universe. Mine is called A Gutted World, and shows us a timeline where the Cardassians never pulled out of Bajor.

"It's a tribute to DeCandido that the various captains’ (and others’) decisions seem perfectly within character, even as the galaxy falls apart around them. Recommended, albeit depressing." ---Peter Quentin, Total Sci-Fi

Also on sale now is my second (and the overall third) novel based on the CW's hit series Supernatural. Bone Key sees Sam and Dean Winchester travel to Key West, Florida to deal with demons, ghosts, and the collective spirit of a Native tribe.

"DeCandido’s style is very easy to read, almost conversational, making this a relaxed way to spend a few hours. For fans of the show there is enough detail to place the story after the third season’s episode 'A Very Supernatural Christmas,' but not so much that it would be off putting for the casual reader." ---Charles Packer, Sci-Fi Online

You can also probably still find my first foray into the mystery section of the bookstore, the CSI: NY novel Four Walls, in which our intrepid CSIs investigate murders on opposite ends of the city: two deaths-in-custody in a Staten Island prison, and a strangling in an Italian bakery in the Bronx.

"[DeCandido] doesn’t write a story that happens to take place in the universe. He understands the fullness and richness of the universe and uses that as a strength in the story, making it his own for the duration." ---Jeremy McCollum, Book Spot Central

It's also still quite possible to get your hands on Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership, a short-story collection I edited featuring the first eight Doctors encountering leaders throughout time and space. Stories are by Diane Duane, Peter David, James Swallow, Steve Savile, Terri Osborne, Una McCormack, Allyn Gibson, Richard C. White, Robert T. Jeschonek, John S. Drew, Linnea Dodson, and Kathleen O. David.

"The themes that run through these stories are that leadership is about taking the long view, making difficult choices and doing the right thing -- even though it terrifies you. This is what the Doctor has to do on a daily basis, so we can infer that by understanding these leaders a bit better, we can get a glimpse of what it's like to be a Time Lord." ---Matt Michael, Doctor Who Magazine

Just available now is Star Trek: Corps of Engineers: Wounds, the latest "dead tree" edition of COE novellas originally published as eBooks. Besides my own Security, this collection includes stories by Terri Osborne, Ilsa J. Bick, John J. Ordover, and Cory Rushton, and has several crossovers with the post-finale Deep Space Nine fiction.

If you're a member of the BattleCorps web site, you can also read my Classic BattleTech short story "Meiyo." And coming up we've got the Farscape comic book miniseries (published monthly from November to January) that I co-wrote with series creator Rockne S. O'Bannon, with art by Tommy Patterson; the short story "Family Matters" in Star Trek: Mirror Universe: Shards and Shadows in January; Star Trek: A Singular Destiny, a followup to David Mack's Destiny trilogy, in February; and my issue of the Star Trek: Alien Spotlight II miniseries focusing on the Klingons, with art by JK Woodward, coming next spring.
