Spider-Man: Down There Mean Streets

Серия: "-"

A brand-new designer drug arrives in New York City with the force of a hurricane: Triple X, a potentially lethal combination of ecstasy and gamma radiation that is literally turning users from the shadowy, dank alleys to the glittering, raucous party circuit into living, rampaging nightmares. For high school science teacher Peter Parker, Triple X's onslaught on some of his students and his wife's professional life is as dangerous as it is unexpected. For Peter's secret alter-ego, the costumed crime-fighter known to the world as Spider-Man, the situation quickly accelerates from bad to worse, as the drug's effects run unchecked against law enforcement's and his own valiant efforts to rein in the city-wide chaos. But there is a growing consensus between Spider-Man and the police that, for reasons yet unknown, one of the arachnid's most fearsome enemies may be behind it all as part of a greater scheme to bring the city - and one of its most heroic and hated defenders - to its knees at long last...

DeCandido was born in the Bronx in New York City, the son of Robert L. DeCandido and GraceAnne A. DeCandido. He claims to have been a Star Trek fan even before his birth, as his parents were fans of Star Trek: The Original Series.

In his college years at Fordham University, DeCandido worked as an editor and writer of one of the college newspapers, called simply the paper. After graduation, he has 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.)[1]


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 and Farscape, as well as comic books (Spider-Man, X-Men), role-playing games (Dungeons & Dragons), and video games (World of Warcraft, StarCraft, Command & Conquer). 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 2010, DeCandido was named Grandmaster by the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers.[2]

He currently writes the twice-weekly Star Trek: The Next Generation Rewatch on[3]
