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 ...as 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.
Coming Attractions: The Company I Keep
David Cranmer and company have let the syphilitic cat out of the bag. BEAT TO A PULP Round 1. Pretty stoked to be included with writers like Gorman (love his westerns) Ardai (Hard Case Crime...do I have to draw you a picture?) Randisi, etc., etc. Don't know when this stunner is hitting stores, but wow...look at that cover! Framing that puppy, believe me. Still floored to have ended up in the line up (I'm one of the "others"). My very first science fiction story and a hell of a lot of fun to write. Look for this bad craziness soon and keep it away from the little ones.
