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.

Counting down the days...

Sure, yeah...I watch pre-season football. Sometimes. But for my money, the real quest for the enchilada begins in September.

And look-ee boys' opener is against who? Washington? This is going to sound like so much smack, but Dan Snyder can throw all the money he wants at his pet project. Have at it, you twerp, because karma is a bear, Danny. Your putzy micro-management has proved--oh shall we say--suckful for the last DECADE.

I've a character in this novel I'm working on who (like someone else in the room--ahem) is a massive NY Giants fan, stuck in world where everyone bleeds (grrrrrr) midnight green. A nightmare for certain. Not Fred Exley crazy nightmare, but just about.

August is such a dead time for sports on TV. Sure, there's golf, baseball (meh), and the US Open revs up in a few weeks, but football? Can't freakin' wait.
