Jed? You were leading the way there, but Bardsley...fucking BARDSLEY with the DeWalt tie in (a Maryland company!!!) takes the beer. So, Greg, you get a micro at B'Con. Frank, Paul, and Jed? When we cross paths, you guys too...although it may be just a Mickey's Bigmouth for Frank and Jed. Paul gets a cranberry and soda. Rest in peace, Andy. You bastard. And thanks for reading. Other news...while I'll was having a weird, wild time on the bay with high winds (30 knots), a lost tender (dingy), and critical shortage of rum...Chris over @ A TWIST OF NOIR posted yet another one of my Charlie Byrne stories...set in the future after Charlie's long fall from grace. Thanks, Christopher. Bardsley, you rule.
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.
