KIERAN SHEA’s fiction has appeared in dozens of venues including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, Dogmatika, Word Riot, Plots with Guns, Beat to a Pulp, Crimefactory, and Needle: A Magazine of Noir ...as well as in some beefy-looking anthologies most of which will make you question the tether of his shiny, red balloon. To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.
Take Heart, Small One
While I'll was laid low by the flu, etc. there was ample time for catching up on some reading--about a half dozen novels, great sheets of newspaper, and a sneaky stack of comic books feeding the inner nerd. I'm sure some blogger tagged this but I found this New York Times piece heartening. Despite the hatchetmen, the short story keeps on. Go little, fellah, go.
