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.


What a Waste of Time

Of course I was dumb enough to watch Spiderman 3 last night. Good God. Could not turn away from the awfulness. *SIGH* But The Ramones can always pick me up. As did this cartoon when I was a kid (although I was always skeptical that men wearing fedoras were the only ones doing smash and grabs). And the lyrics! Who really ignores wealth and fame? This is America! It's Christmas! Gimme, gimme, gimme some more!
