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.


Farce and Fools

Ah. The farce continues. Absurdity at all turns. Take your pick from the daily headlines and then sigh. Turns out Google and Verizon together, roughly translated, means pernicious bastards. You don't say? Gee and things were going so well. Then there's this little nugget of bonus material for those of us trying to lift the boulders with our minds and, literally, ask to be abused. Like aspiring writers didn't have enough problems. We are fools.
