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.

Back at it. Taking on a tale that I hope I can stay on top of, keep aflame, go long...2.5 K in 3 hours is respectable, right? Doesn't matter. Keep going, keep going. Listened to a lot of the Drive-By Truckers along the way, their songs of pain and family and rage. Reminded me a lot of Woodrell's comments at B'con about the family drama as crime story. Of course then I saw this trailer...more or less in the same camp, no? Synchronicity? Maybe. Looks great.
