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. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.


FanBoy Geekin': Philly-wise per my usual dawdle before re-working the WIP, my cursor wandered over to a few favorite sites and writer blogs today. When I tapped the NEW SCIENTIST you could have knocked me over with a feather. Talk about art imitating life. Next to THE WHEELMAN and his grave-cold Punisher comic scripts, Duane Swierczynski's novel THE BLONDE is, by far, my favorite. I just dig the idea of nano-technology. On the New Scientist today the "Mary-Kates" from the THE BLONDE come to life. Sort of. Take a "Fantastic Voyage" and check this out.
