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.


Bye Bye Blackmoore

Goodbye, Mr. Blackmoore, for now. We will be looking for these books of yours. May the Force be with you or, at the very least, may the wind be at your back...and not those brittle Santa Anas that scorch Cali either. Something that moves kindly and with grace, some kind of wind that soothes. You lucky, lucky bastard. You are hereby expelled from the dog pile at right. Now then, go kick some ass.
