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.
Last year I struggled through the class five Charlie Foxtrot that is Philadelphia highways and barely (just barely) made the Goodis-fest scene at the memorial park. Post-event gnosh was a strange and fun time...where I was convinced I needed to attend NoirCon at all costs. Friendly reminder, this noir-junkie event is coming up this Sunday so if you're in the area do yourself a favor and go. Click here or here for event details and for the love of Mike, wear a warm coat. North Philly is barren and bitter in January, just like the cold-hearted femme fatales of DG's novels.
