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.


Wolven and Doolittle

It may be gone, but I still think this is my favorite issue of Thug Lit ever. The cover is one thing, but Wolven and Doolittle? Man....does it get any better? Nope. And don't forget to include Big Daddy Thug on your holiday card list, you people who made the grade before he folded the circus tent. Biggest, kindest, thug of them all...that man needs all the good will he can get. Apparently there's a Christmas "flash" comp going on over here, if you're interested.
