Daniel Keys Moran has graciously allowed these files to be available electronically; something for which we are all grateful. Please respect his copyright notices in each of the files, and the fact that he does make a living by writing.
New! Short pieces, which Dan recorded for NPR's "The Way In".
This is the archive of nonfiction pieces by Daniel Keys Moran. Most of them were taken and edited from posts that he made to the continuing-time mailing list. They include general information about the Continuing Time (its creation and current status as a project) and information about his career as a writer, including some of the problems he's had.
There's also some speeches, Dan's political views, and true real-life incidents.
A collection of Afterwords from Emerald Eyes, The Long Run, and The Last Dancer. All were edited, against DKM's wish, by Bantam.
A news release explaining the state of the Continuing Time as of December 1994.
A Timeline of events in the Continuing Time, up until the end of The Last Dancer.
3 dimensional image rendering, and why Hollywood is doomed
How Dan writes
An article about the genesis of The Ring movie novelization. It was originally written for a SFWA bulletin, but ended up not being sent to them due to Bantam's unhappiness with the article.
An episode of Star Trek:Voyager titled Ex Post Facto was very similar to a story idea that Daniel Keys Moran pitched to Paramount, yet which Paramount did not accept. Daniel describes the incident as he saw it, and how it was resolved.
DKM also made available the original pitches (in the fiction archive) of the story idea mentioned above. This ultimately became the episode of Star Trek:Deep Space Nine titled Hard Time.
Here's a bunch of quotes that Dan is interested in. It's somewhat long at 40K.
There's also DKM's recommended reading list (and other comments on other authors).
Here is the CNI Spring 1995 Task Force Meeting, which includes their summary of the speech.
Speech at Conspiracy (A science-fiction convention). This is actually a rough draft of the above speech, but it contains a cool car spinout story that was cut out.
Dan is very passionately concerned about the political process. Here are some of his views on the state of our nation. He even considered running for office once!
This is a real experience DKM had while working as a consultant in New York City. It's very amusing.
DKM's drive to San Antonio for Worldcon 1997 and back again. A fun story.
A short bio of DKM's father, Richard Joseph Moran.
A five-minute writer's exercise. Dan meets, or rather, does NOT meet, Elvis..
