Keohane, Daniel G

Entry updated 20 June 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1963-    ) US author who has also published as by Dan Keohane and G Daniel Gunn, most of his work being horror. He began to publish work of genre interest with "Incineration" in Cemetery Sonata (anth 1999) edited by June Hubbard; his first novel, Solomon's Grave (2009), describes with hints of Time Abyss the search for an ancient secret whose revelation may spell doom. Destroyer of Worlds (2012) as by G Daniel Gunn does not quite describe the coming apocalypse that fills its cast with horror. Keohane is of sf interest primarily for the Vast Array sequence beginning with Plague of Locusts (2022), in which a Space Opera arena serves as background for a more intimate tale – see James Blish's A Case of Conscience (1958) and Maria Doria Russell's The Sparrow (1996) – in which a Christian priest on another planet (see Colonization of Other Worlds; Religion) finds that his predecessor has hidden a deadly secret; the tale is complicated by the intrusion of locust Monsters which in Horror-In-Sf fashion attack anything outdoors after dark.
