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.


Makes Me Feel Like Riverdancin'

After Christopher Walken who're you going to call for the go-to creepy villain, cop, and edgy character, huh? Best Willem Dafoe flicks for me? TO LIVE AND DIE IN L.A., WILD AT HEART, BOONDOCK SAINTS, DAYBREAKERS and maybe PLATOON. Maybe. Not a big Ollie Stone fan except for possibly SALVADOR which brings up the clean-up creepy hitter (and a kick-ass vampire slayer too) Jimmy Woods. Man, they grow some strange, talented folk in Appleton, Wisconsin, don't they? Happy Birthday, WD.
