Every once in a while God throws you a bone, saying, s'all good, slacker. Stuck down here in Maryland I had the Jersey lunch jones today and found this Weather Channel gem on YouTube. Local heroes of the Garden State--Cartaret and Scotch Plains--The Smithereens, playing "White Castle Blues". Oh, do I remember hanging out on a hotel floor in Reading, PA with these guys back in the day. Taste the slider love.
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.
