Recently we got rid of one of our felines. We only had two. No great loss as he was a psychotic, misunderstood bastard who was always on the wrong side of the law--mine. His name was Tack...a swerving reservoir of two expressions: snotty boredom and abject fear. His brother, one mellow mofo, remains to rule the roost. His name is Jibe, and anyway I'm thinking of adding a pet cat to a story that I'm working on. Nothing new there, you know, cats in stories but for me it's a first. In the story I'm giving him three legs and calling him Chomsky.
In honor of literary cats...a video. Just try standing still.
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.
