Keith Robert Andreassi DeCandido (born April 18, 1969 in the Bronx, New York, United States) is an American science fiction and fantasy writer and musician, who works on comic books, novels, role-playing games and video games, including numerous media tie-in books for properties such as Star Trek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Andromeda, Farscape, Leverage, Spider-Man, X-Men, and Sleepy Hollow.

While attending Fordham University, DeCandido worked as an editor and writer of one of the college newspapers, called simply the paper.

After graduation, DeCandido worked as editor at several publishing companies. Along with John Drew, in the 1990s he co-produced a public-access television cable TV show in Manhattan about science fiction called The Chronic Rift, which he also co-hosted. (The podcast of the same name is a revival of the show, with many of the same people involved in the production, including DeCandido and Drew.)

While DeCandido spent much of his career writing Star Trek fiction, he has written tie-ins for other popular sci-fi and fantasy series as well, such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Andromeda, Farscape, and Leverage as well as comic books (Spider-Man, X-Men), movies (Cars, Kung Fu Panda), role-playing games (Dungeons & Dragons), and video games (World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Command & Conquer). He has also written fiction in universes of his own creation, most notably that of the 2004 novel Dragon Precinct, a high-fantasy police procedural. He has also edited various anthologies, including OtherWere, Urban Nightmares, Imaginings, the Doctor Who collection Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership, and the Star Trek anthologies New Frontier: No Limits, Tales of the Dominion War, and Tales from the Captain's Table.

In 2009, DeCandido was named Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.

He recently completed a Star Trek: The Next Generation Rewatch on, and is now doing a similar one twice a week for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine on the same site.
