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', the sequel to Anthony Neil Smith's novel YELLOW MEDICINE , is only days away from release and today started the virtual-blog motorcycle rally to spread the word and pimp the love. Lots of writers, Plots with Guns alums, noir fans, etc. are taking part--including me. What the fuck is virtual-blog motorcycle rally? Choke on the mayhem, read, and find out here at Dr. Smith's portal in the blogistan. My contribution to the mix starts tomorrow. And yeah, that's a bunch of fuckin' Mods on jacked-out scooters in the photo, what of it? Stay tuned.
