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.
GO TO HELL
Bwahh? Remaking ANGEL HEART? Really? Is this freaking necessary? Apparently so. In a sludge-brained quest for material Hollywood is dropping the deuce on Alan Parker's cinematic horror/noir masterpiece. Hey, man...I'm not against writer William Hjortsberg making some scratch, but come on. DeNiro? Rourke? Oh, what's that? The producer did "Ghostrider"? Yeah. Like THAT was awesome. Heard a rumor that Cruise and LaBeouf were attached and I nearly had a stroke. Calm down, people. Thankfully that rumor was just hearsay. But cripes...you never know.
