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.


Music: DC's SounDClash

They're government wonks by day, DJs extrordinaire by night. If you're ever in DC (especially on the last Friday of the month when they do their old school ska vinyl mixing at the Marx Cafe up in Adam's Morgan), check these lads out. You can sample their mixes online. And FYI the Marx Cafe? Bistro boss, bro. Have the lamb chops. Or the *sigh* empanadillas with the peppadew.
