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.



Like you didn't see this shit coming forty years ago. Finally. Can we now please get this drivel off the assigned reading lists for teens? Book of the century my ass. The closing line to this NY Times article sums it up for me. And another thing, stop giving kids (and characters) this pretentious, sniveling name. Yeah, Kevin Smith...I'm talking to you. I mean, dude, I worship Clerks, and laughed myself sick watching Chasing Amy but, man, fucking Holden? Bad enough you cast Affleck....
