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.


Just In Time: THUGLIT 33

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Like you didn't know it already. Todd and Lady D. chucked up the new Thuglit 33. Take that spooky Masonic number and stuff it in your Rolling Rock bottle full of spent cigarettes. This issue features the likes of Mike MacLean (wowza) and late night Italian food B'con co-conspirator, Trey Barker. Get some.
