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.
The Company I Keep: NEEDLE
Needle: A Magazine of Noir - Winter Issue. Oh yeah, getting some traction. Am I wrong here? Did you see last month's Mystery Scene Magazine "get hip" review of this pulp fiction upstart? Oh, yeah. When I submitted my piece back in September I believe I added a note saying something like "jeeze--this, this thing...where else can I send it?" Great company in the mix. Powell, Funk, Sophie, Graham, Bowlin, Gonzales, Godwin, Doc Noir, Mayo, McBride, Cudmore and the "Saturday Boy"....wow. Feel proud to have made the grade.
