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.
In the wee small hours of this morning I received word about a project that looked dead getting a glimmer (albeit faint) of hope. Breaking out the AED? We'll see. We're not packing up the evil empire circus tent just yet...the ringmaster is still waxing his mustache. Yeah, bacon chimichanga dude, you've got that whole giddy Snidely Whiplash thing going on...only this time maybe the Dudley Do-Rights (the naysayers and hatchetmen) will get a full-bore of bird shot straight in their faces and not survive. Dang. This publishing thing is a crazy business. It's like walking into a cage-full of Tanzanian baboons wielding hammers and aiming for your heart.
