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.


The Other Shea

All good things come to an end. Fox's RESCUE ME will end next year. Truly bummed as I really love this show. The writing...the madness...the guts...the crude, black humor. But above all I love Lieutenant Kenny "Lew" Shea (played by John Scurti pictured left). The "Little John" and go-to comic apostle, Lew Shea epitomizes the proper response to the trauma life chucks your way. A whole lot of grace. Dogged loyalty. Equanimity and a well placed laugh. Plus, the fight. Always, always...the fight.
