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 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.



Hogdoggin' Rally - Day 13. And Sophie Littlefield takes the reins. I was lucky enough to be introduced to Sophie at Bouchercon last Fall. She's razor sharp and a true champion of the craft. I've also had the good fortune to read an advance copy of her upcoming crime fiction debut A BAD DAY FOR SORRY. And I'm here to testify, people--buy this novel. That sound you're hearing? That's the sound of the genre's rib cage cracking wide open as Littlefield rips its heart out.
